    Charlie Tuxworth, Chair of Innovate Island, highlighted the importance of cooperation in addressing the challenges of our time: "Today's challenges, whether relating to technology, resources, costs, or the environment, cannot be fixed by simply trying harder. Collaboration is the key to changing anything, and we cannot afford to wait for others to take the lead to solve the hard problems. It's up to us to think differently, to innovate, and drive real change."

    Kathryn Lynch, Vice Chair of Innovate Island, echoed this sentiment: "We have a collective responsibility to make innovation work and leave a hopeful legacy for the next generation. It's time to stop talking and start doing. Today’s event was a great way to start strong and make a meaningful impact together."

    The event showcased the immense potential of the Innovate Island community to drive positive change and innovation across the island of Ireland. Through collaboration, creativity, and a shared commitment to innovation, attendees left inspired and motivated to make a difference in their respective fields.
