Welcome to the Open Incubator
Weather you simply want to see what’s happening in Ireland’s innovation ecosystem or want to develop a successful startup or social enterprise, this is your place to get started!
Diversity and Inclusion
This group collaborates to innovate in diversity and inclusion. Diversity incorporates all the elements that make individuals unique from one another, such as gender, race, age and so forth.
Sustainability and Circular Economy
This group innovates in sustainability and circular economy. The circular economy stems from the realisation that Earth is a finite system constrained by planetary boundaries. The key objective is to design systems to retain value.
Jobs and Employment
This group collaborates to innovate in jobs and employment. Following our time at university, most of us will be looking for a job of some kind. Therefore it’s important to consider what makes us employable.
This group collaborates to innovate in Law. Law can be defined as the system of rules which a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and which it may enforce by the imposition of penalties.
This group collaborates to innovate in creative arts. The arts are a very wide range of human practices of creative expression and cultural participation. Here we discuss and develop solutions to challenges in the arts and creative areas.
This group collaborates to innovate in student experience. The definition of student experience is “how students perceive the academic institution they attend”. Here we develop solutions to challenges of the student experience.
This group collaborates to innovate in sport. From real-time analytics tools that maximize player efficiency, to a whole new level of streaming services, sports are always on the cutting edge.
Health and Wellbeing
The World Health Organisation defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Artificial intelligence is the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.
Innovation in the food industry combines technological innovation with social and cultural innovation. It occurs throughout the entire food system, from production to distribution.
