S3E7-Rural Innovation in Ireland

July 8, 2019

A growing population, opportunities in a variety of industries and sectors, focus on experience and food, and a drive to find new and better ways of doing just about anything? If you think this describes a trendy metropolis, think again. Rural Ireland is creating a range of innovative rural development strategies that bring together residents, industry, civil sector and academic institutions on projects that range from implementation of broadband internet access, to agro-tourism, to intellectual capital vouchers. In this episode of Rural Routes you’ll hear from Dr. Felicity Kelliher at the Waterford Institute of Technology on rural innovation in Ireland.

The Rural Routes team at the Harris Centre also needs your help. We are conducting an evaluation of the show and we would very much appreciate if you could fill out the survey at the link below. It will help us understand how we can make Rural Routes better.

    I commented, I guess on Soundcloud, but in case that’s not ‘affiliated’ (wow, was that word used a lot, and in ways I had not previously even considered!), I’ll repeat here. It was a lovely podcast. I could listen to Kelliher read the phone book and remain interested, such is the siren call of her accent, but the content was excellent and applicable in many ways to my rural ‘cottage country’ Ontario community. Many thanks. And I will be checking other Rural Routes podcasts to see what other treasures lie therein!.

  3. That is the best weblog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You notice a lot its virtually onerous to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just great!
