Cork Institute of Technology’s Innovation Week 2016 will kick off on Monday 7th March with an official launch taking place around a supersized box in the Main Atrium of the Bishopstown campus.
The annual event, which is now in its 6th year, will see a week-long series of events and activities promoting entrepreneurship and innovation take place across CIT’s five campus locations.
The schedule includes a wide range of seminars, exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations. This year’s event will also host a Women in Business STEM networking event as well as a talk on Scientific Innovations Informing Practice in Elite Sport by Kildare Football Manager, Cian O’Neill.
The highlight of the week is the Local Enterprise Offices (Cork) CIT Prize for Innovation which awards €10,000 in cash prizes to those whose inventions and business ideas are judged most creative, novel, innovative, and likely to succeed in the workplace.
