Launch of Irish Marine Industry Network

The IMDO is delighted to be involved with the launch of an Irish Marine Industry Network, an initiative of strategic importance for positioning Ireland at the forefront of marine innovation through maximising collaboration and cross-sectoral opportunities.

Over 100 organisations of all sizes from both the public and private sectors were represented at the launch event for the Network, which took place in Enterprise Ireland HQ, Dublin, on 30th November 2016. The event featured presentations from IMDO Director, Liam Lacey, Tom Kelly and Liam Curran from Enterprise Ireland, and cluster expert Dr John Hobbs from CIT.

While the event was extremely well-attended, some organisations may not yet have had the opportunity to participate. We would strongly encourage anyone with interests in Ireland's marine economy to get involved in this collaboration.
