Our international outreach

Over the last two years, to help inform the development of a new innovation campus at Grand Canal Quay, Trinity has been building relationships with renowned leaders in the development and programming of innovation districts internationally. We have visited sites in Europe and the USA to learn from their districts and to consider how to apply best practice to the Irish context.

We have learned from both Cortex Innovation Community (a large innovation district in St Louis, Missouri) and Cambridge Innovation Centre (CIC), an organisation that provides flexible co-working spaces and coordinates events to bring innovators, investors and researchers together. This video was part of a panel session at the American Chamber of Commerce’s Conference in 2019. Diarmuid O’Brien, Trinity’s Chief Innovation Officer, was joined by Dennis Lower, President & CEO of Cortex; Tim Rowe, Founder and CEO of CIC, and Carrie Allen, Executive Director for CIC Captains of Innovation.
