The SMARTlab and Research teams of UCD will be hosting and moderating an ongoing series of innovation design/knowledge exchange workshops, mini-roundtables, and technology mapping exercises to make visible and audible the new ideas bubbling up throughout the event.

The SMARThub will be based in the centre of the European Parliament, and will host an artist-in residence drawing the events of each day in analogue format, along with technologies including mindmapping,smartboards, visualisatioon tools,  virtual world spaces where collaborators at a distance can join in live, and a live videos stream to youtube where the essence of key ideas can be collected and projected in real time. Big ideas arising will be fed into overall event plenary sessions throughout the week. Daily roundtable workshops will be hosted on a 'need to talk' basis as new ideas and conversations emerge across the plenary and panel sessions.
