The event will explore how digital innovation can contribute to the  cultural identity of a city and contribute to the “creative energy between people, workplaces and social spaces”.

In particular, Brendan will discuss how the Internet of Things, a major focus of CONNECT’s research agenda, is rapidly changing how we interact in the digital realm. He will also explain how some of the technologies and test-beds developed by CONNECT researchers could help the development of innovative digital solutions in Waterford.

It is the second of three public forum events organised by the Creativity and Culture Research Group in Waterford Institute of Technology and the Garter Lane Arts Centre.
