Innovation Alliance Final Event
The Innovation Alliance content has been released to a wide international audience of researchers, academics, higher education managers and entrepreneurs. During the three day ISBE conference, that took place in Paris (France) from October 26 to 28, the Innovation Alliance project partners shared their thoughts, insights and project outcomes through a keynote presentation by Joe English (Meath County Council), a plenary panel contribution by Dr. Conor Patterson (Newry and Mourne Enterprise Agency) and an hour and a half Innovation Alliance presentation and discussion. These contributions with the over 300 participants from across Europe have led to a wide number of interesting interactions and indications of interest in the alliances, the toolkit and SME training course.

In addition to the presentation, the Innovation Alliance project had a stand in the breakroom, offering information on its project activities and success stories (e.g. Co-Innovate project, a €18 million project, supporting over 1,400 SMEs in Ireland and the UK). More than 50 business cards were distributed amongst the conference participants and are helping to develop new relationships to further build upon the important work of the Innovation Alliance project.
