On May 11th this year, the Department for The Economy published the ’10X Economy – An Economic Vision For A Decade Of Innovation’ which set out the Department’s economic vision that will encourage greater collaboration and innovation to deliver a ten times better economy for the benefit of all in Northern Ireland. A core focus of this strategy is to prioritise Technologies and Clusters (HealthTech, GreenTech and FinTech) where NI can lead the world again.  The Catalyst Innovation Community sits right at the heart of this key focus. On June 30th 2021, we held an interactive session with key decision makers and the Catalyst Community to discuss the 10X Economy Vision and share feedback, suggestions and insights from the tech community.
