Congratulations to Leading Lights in Irish Innovation

The recent economic news coming out of Ireland has not been good and many Irish people struggle forward in a difficult economy.While recognising that times are challenging, we are pleased to be able to highlight examples of companies and individuals that are working hard to create a sustainable and prosperous future for Ireland. These companies and individuals deserve to be celebrated.

Ireland has already proved itself capable of becoming the ‘Celtic Tiger’ and creating a truly remarkable economic turnaround. The companies and individuals that have been  nominated for the final of the Innovatosr &  Researcher’s Contest, to be held on-stage at Globe Forum Dublin, could well be some of the people responsible for Ireland’s next miracle. After all, it is the blood, sweat and tears of entrepreneurs and those who support them that are leaders in forging the path out of crisis and towards prosperity.

These twelve finalists showcase the best current Irish research and innovation projects, each of which will now compete to win the coveted titles “Ireland’s Innovator” and “Irelands Researcher” and major prize funds. The six nominated innovators are:

Power Save; PEL Recycling Ltd., Veutility, Geo Guides, Creme Global and Zinc Software

The six nominated researchers are:

Aiden Doherty, DCU, Aimee Byrne, TCD, Anthony Schoofs, Clarity Centre for Sensor Web Technologies, David Connolly, UCL, Ivana Dusparic and Paul Doherty, UCD

If you are attending the forum, you will be able to see each of these companies and individuals present their innovations and projects at the forum prior to the final round of judging to select the innovator and researcher winners. The 60 second pitches and lots of other great content will also be available via Youtube as soon as we can get them on-line during the conference.

Access to the full press release, as well as details for interviewing the finalists is available here. Without further ado, I will leave the final word on these ‘leading lights of Irish innovation’ to Johan Gorecki, Globe Forum CEO:

It is a fantastic testament to the knowledge in the Irish business world that there were so many high calibre entries into the contest. The twelve finalists have already proven themselves in an immense capacity following the interview stages we look forward to seeing how each innovator will perform at the conference. It will be an exciting week for Irish research and innovation and I am delighted to be part of it”.
