Your Country Your Call Narrows the Field

So, the initial results (semi-finalists) are in for the Your Country Your Call competition, and what an eclectic mix they turned out to be. Education and language have several entries, as does the gaming industry (which is a growing cluster in the Dublin region). There are several around health including an Innovation centre for the HSE. Interesting. Seeing as this is an organisation that presides over a healthcare system that can barely go two weeks without some form of controversy, this is a brave choice to say the least.

Energy gets several look-ins from solar to bio-energy fuels. Another is a district of ‘communications and knowledge’ that would mirror the IFSC, but on the southern side of the river. It would seem that some of these may be asked to merge their ideas, but at least the majority of them fit the profile of the kind of ideas the original group who put together the competition back in early 2009 had for this. The winners will be announced on September the 17th. Then the real work begins.
