    The international Dublin-based tech event Inspirefest, will now become known as Future Human and will be a place where “science, technology and the arts collide”.

    The 2020 event, hosted by Irish tech news site Silicon Republic, will run on the 21 and 22 May in Dublin’s Trinity Business School.

    This new venue was opened by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in May 2019 and has solar panels, ‘green’ walls, recycled water and fresh airflow. The organisers say this venue will facilitate the new format, which will see more collaboration, interactivity and hands-on experiences.

    The dean of Trinity Business School, Professor Andrew Burke commented that “Inspirefest galvanised an international cutting-edge approach to innovation, creation and collaboration as well as its dissemination across a stellar global community.”

    He said that “locating the conference at the new eco-friendly, near-zero energy Trinity Business School building alongside focusing the new conference on mission-driven innovation is going to turn it into a unique powerhouse event.

    “Future Human is going to be a game-changing event that will help shape people’s personal lives, society and businesses in ways that best serve the future of humanity.”
