Creating Our Future is a Government of Ireland campaign to stimulate a national conversation that generates ideas from the public to inform the direction of research in Ireland.
Creating our Future is guided and supported by a large cohort of Government and non-Government organisations. The American Chambers of Commerce in Ireland, the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, Chambers Ireland, IBEC, the Industry Research and Development Group, Údarás na Gaeltachta, IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and Science Foundation Ireland encourage our collective industry members and networks to actively participate in this national campaign.
Anyone, anywhere can have an idea that inspires research. It could be based on an opportunity or challenge that someone has identified in their own life, for their community, for Ireland or for the world. Or it could be based on a topic that someone is curious or passionate about. The campaign wants to hear them all - whatever facet of life they relate to.
From now until the idea submission deadline at the end of November, the campaign will be reaching out to engage people, groups and communities in our events and activities. Central to this is working with the business community across the country to activate and engage their staff, customers and the wider public in the campaign to capture their ideas.
This virtual Business Community Activation Event will provide you with an opportunity to hear more about
• the background to and objectives of the campaign
• the practical steps you and your business can take to support and benefit from the campaign as well as guidance on how to engage your staff, customers and the public
• the roll-out of the campaign across the country through our road show and virtual events
