Are we Smart?
Some of the world’s most innovative solutions exist in our region; across energy, healthcare, industry, commerce, buildings, communities & many more. SMARTPLACES is a project with big ambitions. It is a collaborative project between the Northern and Western Regional Assembly (NWRA), the Western Development Commission (WDC), and the Insight Centre (NUI Galway) and is working with stakeholders to be a platform for capturing existing smart projects and building a strategy to ensure our international competitiveness.

SMARTPLACES sets to build a SMART & effective region. Adopting a smart strategy, smart policies and smart practices will enable continued international investment and ensure our people create and participate in the jobs of the future. Can we be Smarter? Yes. We can be world leaders with your help.
A short 5-10 minute survey has been set up to capture our current SMART position: http://smartplaces.insight-centre.org Please click the green button ‘Do the Survey’.
The survey looks for information about smart people, smart solutions and smart organisations from Clare to Donegal and Monaghan to Mayo. (Cavan, Clare, Donegal, Galway City, Galway County, Leitrim, Mayo, Monaghan Roscommon, Sligo). By ‘Smart’, we mean using modern technology, policies or systems to improve people’s lives.
