All-island Innovation Programme


The InterTradeIreland 2010 Innovation Conference was delivered as part of the InterTradeIreland All-island Innovation Programme which aims to promote and encourage innovation across the island of Ireland. This Programme, now in its second year, is organised by InterTradeIreland, Queen’s University Belfast, NovaUCD and the Centre for Innovation and Structural Change at NUI Galway. It enables international expertise and best practice innovation to be shared with business leaders, students, academics, knowledge transfer professionals and policy makers across Ireland via innovation lectures, seminars and master classes and an annual innovation conference.

The All-Island Innovation Programme is complemented by a Community of Researchers working on innovation across the island. The aim of this community is to adequately study innovation in several academic disciplines over a longitudinal period, to progress the development of an all-island knowledge economy and to align best practice in innovation research with current policy thinking and inform future policy-making and its implementation.

Previous innovation lectures have been delivered by Professor Henry Chesbrough, Director of the Centre for Open Innovation, University of California, Berkeley, Professor Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategic and International Management, London Business School, Professor Erkko Autio, Chair in Technology Transfer and Entrepreneurship, Imperial College London and Professor Peter Russo, Director of the Strascheg Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, European Business School, Frankfurt.
