20 October 2022

The second DARIAH Innovation Forum: Bringing Together DARIAH and the Industries will take place on November 3, from 9:30 to 19:00 GMT in the Trinity Long Room Arts and Humanities Research Institute in Dublin, Ireland. This one-day event will include panel presentations, a keynote and an innovation challenge that highlight the importance of arts and humanities in having a ground-breaking impact on technological development to create truly human-centred innovation. 

Director of ADAPT, the world-leading SFI Research Centre for AI-Driven Digital Content Technology, Prof Vincent Wade will speak at the event, highlighting the predominant necessity for technological innovations to be critically reviewed and discussed from an arts and humanities lens. His talk will also emphasise the need to empower individuals, communities and society through technology, a vision that cannot be realised without a humanistic approach to innovation. 

The event will also see participation from Human+, an international and interdisciplinary research fellowship programme led by the ADAPT Centre and the Trinity Long Room Arts and Humanities Research Institute, supported by the prestigious European Commission, Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Co-Fund Action.

This year’s DARIAH Innovation Forum aims to encourage collaboration between industry partners and interdisciplinary research projects sustained by a human-centred approach to technological innovation. This forum is led by the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH), which aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research in arts and humanities across Europe. 

To realise this goal, the 2022 DARIAH Innovation Forum focuses on the Innovation Challenge of reinventing regional airports as hubs for cultural exchange, helping revive their economic and social vitality. In addition to panel discussions and a keynote, the forum will allow researchers to present their solutions to the aforementioned Innovation Challenge, giving them a chance to create innovative ideas and win attractive cash prizes. 

The DARIAH Innovation Forum is open to the public. There are no attendance fees, but registration is required. The event can be attended either in person or online. Attendees are advised to select only one mode of participation as in-person participation has a seating capacity limit.
