8th December 2015: Testing and Making – Developing Ballymun as a test base for innovative new products and services

The recent regeneration has meant Ballymun has a state-of-the-art built environment, with an intricate set of housing typologies, spaces and public realm. Dublin City Council are confident that Dublin can become a global leader around smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, with a host of leading technology providers and companies setting up innovation centres across the capital. Ballymun is perfectly suited to become a test bed for these new products and services, which can be prototyped and trialled with an engaged and responsive local community. Equipping the community with the skills to take advantage of this test base would provide locals with skills and ultimately foster a culture of micro-enterprise and employment in Ballymun. We will be working with industry leaders, alongside public sector champions to make this a reality.
