Future Social Media: enhancing cohesion through advanced digital technology, an event by Digital Catapult
In April 2018, Digital Catapult, in collaboration with Technology Ireland Innovation Forum, Trinity College and ADAPT Centre Dublin, designed and delivered an Open Call and workshop on the theme of ‘future social media’ as part of the Vital Media project. During the project duration, Digital Catapult has delivered two networking events within the UK and Europe to facilitate collaboration between technologists and creative content makers, and to create a roadmap for digital media content and media innovation.

The Open Call and workshop went really well and there was a very positive working relationship with the Irish partners – Trinity College, ADAPT Centre and Technology Ireland Innovation Forum. Some really interesting insights came out of the workshop by expert contributors/speakers, the participants and the three Open Call finalists companies.
