Latest Laois Event: Showcasing digitalisation developed in Irish Midlands
Showcasing digitalisation good practices and innovative projects developed in the Irish Midlands
Next Wednesday the 26th of May, the Eastern & Midland Regional Assembly will host an online learning event which will explore innovative digital solutions which are contributing to Healthy Placemaking, Climate Action and Economic Opportunity across the Midlands.
Between 10am and 11:40am, our invited speakers will showcase innovative digital solutions, cutting edge research and public policy responses which are enhancing the attractiveness of the Midlands as a place to live, work and do business.
COVID-19 and the resulting surge in remote working has brought to the fore the importance of creating a culture of digitalisation and the need for the public and private sector to work together to identify innovative solutions and to enhance regional attractiveness.

The final session between 12:10pm and 12:30pm will focus on the EU Recovery Plan and what it means for our regions, with a particular focus on the Midlands.
Co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Europe Programme, Next2Met is an innovative interregional exchange project which aims at increasing attractiveness – for knowledge, opportunities, and capital – of territories located close to metropolitan areas. The project brings together 6 regional and local actors and 1 Advisory Partner sharing this common challenge and working together to implement policy solutions. The Eastern and Midland Regional Assembly (EMRA) is the Irish partner.
