Showcase the progress of North West Ireland in creating a dynamic crossborder digital innovation ecosystem.

Description

Representatives from seven regions participating in the EU-funded CARPE DIGEM project will carryout a four-day visit to the North West Ireland crossborder area at the end of March this year.

The aim of the CARPE DIGEM project is to improve public policy support for stimulating digital innovation ecosystems in European regions and cities. The creation of such ecosystems is key to creating high quality jobs and new companies in a digitally transformed global business landscape.

The visit to North West Ireland will focus on the role of the 3rd level education sector, particularly in delivering high-end digital skills and diffusing its research into local businesses, including multinational tech companies.

Reflecting this focus, the visit mainly take place on the campuses of the crossborder area's 3rd level education campuses in Letterkenny and Derry~Londonderry. It will include  study visits to key digital transformation research, innovation and digital hubs.

A highlight will be a discussion of the crossborder area's approach and plans to building the digital innovation ecosystem, involving the region's political, public and private leaders and representatives from the visiting CARPE DIGEM regions.
