Aiming to promote and encourage innovation across the island
The All Island Innovation Programme – Community of Researchers (AIIP-COR) is primarily an initiative to bring together academics and postgraduate students interested in innovation in Ireland.Our aim is to create a virtual community to strengthen innovation studies research in Ireland and its contribution to strategy, practice and policy.
The Community is open to academics throughout the world interested in innovation studies however the explicit focus is on innovation in Ireland.
If you are intertested in joining or would like to discuss this initiative in more detail then please feel free to contact either Nola Hewitt-Dundas (Queens University, firstname.lastname@example.org), or other members of the steering group: James Cunningham (NUI Galway, email@example.com ), Lawrence Dooley (UCC, firstname.lastname@example.org). As the Innovation Community of Researchers has been established as a virtual community with support from InterTradeIreland there is no cost to joining.
Research Briefing Papers
As a way of achieving this aim the Community of Researchers have generated a series of Research Briefing papers which can be viewed below.
This is an exciting new initiative to establish a community of researchers in the area of innovation studies in Ireland. This is being supported by InterTradeIreland and we would like to invite you to become part of this community.
