About the Speech:

Ben Hammersley discussed how to translate the concept of innovation in an advanced knowledge economy, such as Ireland, from rhetoric to reality and presented a vision of the future of innovation.

He argued for a robust dialogue between innovators and policy makers regarding the role that information and communications technology can play in the demand-led innovation of the future. He identified trends arising from increasing digital connectivity and focus on the cognitive tool-kit that policy makers will require to generate, test and refine innovative ideas that work.
