About the Challenge

The Future Tech Challenge is a pilot competition based on a collaboration between Ireland’s Public Service and private sector actors to drive innovation and technology adoption in order to solve pressing public service challenges. It is being coordinated by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform in partnership with IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland.

This first pilot challenge will involve focusing engagements with the multinational sector. The multinational companies involved will be AWS, Cisco, and IBM.  A further iteration will be launched in Spring 2022 which will focus on collaborations with Small and Medium Enterprises.
