OCTA Innovation Issue 31 / 2016 – St Helena, island of systemic innovation
Dr. Niall O’Keeffe, Chief Executive for Economic Development, Enterprise St Helena and Innovation Manager of St Helena and his assistant, Kirsty Joshua travelled from St Helena to Brussels to be there on the 30th of November 2016 for BRUZZ, OCTA Innovation’s event on Business, Innovation and Creativity. We took this opportunity to make two videos, St. Helena Innovation and St Helena Tourism.
It was great meeting the St Helena team whose mission was focused on deepening relations with EU partners and strengthening innovation links for sustainable growth. Dr Niall O’Keeffe stated that with support from the Association of Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTA) St Helena is to systematically capture the knowledge and information available to the community through various networks and also by working in closer cooperation on the island.
Investment has been put in to support the process where all sectors are represented, all information shared and where ideas are tested, followed through and prioritised for the benefit of the sustainable growth of St Helena’s economy.
