Who we are

Innovate Island was created by, and is supported by, like-minded innovation professionals, academics and advisers who are keen to see Innovation become a core business activity across Ireland and Northern Ireland - across the whole Island. We aspire for this network to be an unbiased, non-political (but politically influential), independent source of information, guidance, and best practice for innovation. If at any point you feel that we're veering away from that - please call us out!


When it comes to innovation there is such a thing as a stupid question – they’re the important ones; and it's critical these questions are asked if we are to break out of the trap of conventional & traditional thinking. Innovate Island is a safe place to ask your peers across industry those stupid questions as you and your organisation continue to build innovation capability, capacity and confidence.


We are using the Circle Community Platform to coordinate Innovate Island, and you can access that here. Take a look, and please register to gain access to more content, views, chats, and events.


We've some excellent online events lined up, and we will continue to deliver more of these in addition to some in-person events where we can get together and meet up - perhaps for a beer or a glass of wine? 


We encourage discussion, comment and debate around all the content that is shared, and we ask that this should be critical (in the true sense of the word), constructive and intended to build a deeper understanding of the topic. If there are specific topics that deserve more focused collaboration, then we will set up 'break out' or 'special interest groups' to allow those conversations to develop further. 


If you'd like to lead a special interest group - or are interested in getting involved as part of the leadership team - then please email us at Info@innovateisland.net


This network will only be as good as the content and community that it supports, so please you’re your own content, and do comment, like & share. 


Thank you for getting involved
