GRAND CANAL INNOVATION DISTRICT

GRAND CANAL INNOVATION DISTRICT

Location: Grand Canal Quay and Clanwilliam Terrace.

In some of my images you should see Google.

Friday 10th May: Over 30 volunteers from Grand Canal Quay - residents, employees, school students, volunteers from the Docklands Business Forum and Trinity College Dublin students and personnel transformed a disused wall along the quay into a piece of art. The artwork is partly designed to point to what is to come for the area – the Grand Canal Innovation District.

Trinity, in partnership with Docklands Business Forum and with the support of Dublin City Council have taken on the task of re-painting one of the external walls of the Trinity Technology and Enterprise Centre on Grand Canal Quay as part of the annual Docklands Volunteer Day. The artwork alludes to an “Innovation District” which refers to Trinity’s proposed plan to develop a new campus at the site which will act as a catalyst to develop a globally competitive innovation district for Dublin in the heart of the Docklands. Such a district has the potential to increase our international competitiveness, drive further investment to the city and regions, provide support for local entrepreneurs, connections between researchers and businesses and critically provide an asset for local residents.

Since the launch of the Grand Canal Innovation District vision by An Taoiseach in July last year, an Advisory Group chaired by Martin Fraser, Secretary General of the Department of An Taoiseach and comprising representatives from Government, state agencies, universities, industry and the local community have met to discuss the development of the district. A report from the Group will be published in the summer.
