Our All-island Innovation Programme aims to promote and encourage innovation across the island.
A series of free innovation lectures and master-classes are held throughout the year to share international best practice in areas of innovation.
The events which take place in Belfast, Dublin and Galway each year are attended by business leaders, policy makers, students and academics from across the island.

Irish Times InterTradeIreland All-Island Innovation Awards
The Irish Times InterTradeIreland Innovation Awards 2012 are dedicated to recognising innovative thinking in Irish business. Innovation is the ability to nurture new ideas and make them commercially successfull.
Organisations can enter in one of six categories and each winner will secure a €10,000 media deal with Irish Times and compete to win the overall title of ‘Innovation of the Year’ and win a communications and advertising package worth €150,000. Find out more.
Over recent years we have developed a series of entrepreneurship master classes to bring together founders of early stage growth companies with the island’s most successful business people. These master class typically take place over a day with two experienced business people acting as hosts to a number of early stage companies from across the island. Our experience has shown that there is considerable scope to help early stage growth companies avail of the experience and tacit knowledge of more experienced business people, providing them with something invaluable that you cannot find in a text book.
If you are interested in attending an entrepreneurship masterclass please contact Gary Stokes on 028 3083 4162 (048 from Ireland) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
