About the Speech:

Lord Puttnam discussed his role and priorities as Ireland’s Digital Champion, including encouraging early adoption of digital technology, online education and promoting digital skills. He emphasised the importance of the forthcoming National Digital Strategy and the opportunities that digital presents for Ireland. Looking ahead to the Digital Agenda Assembly in Dublin in June 2013, which is taking place outside of Brussels for the first time, Lord Puttnam’s address provides a valuable opportunity to take stock of Ireland’s ‘Digital Presidency’ and look ahead to its developing digital future.

About the Speaker:

Lord Puttnam was appointed Ireland’s Digital Champion in December 2012. He is the present Chancellor of the Open University and was founding Chair of the UK National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA). He spent thirty years as an independent producer of award-winning films including The Mission, Chariots of Fire and Memphis Belle and now focuses on public policy relating to education, the environment, and the 'creative and communications' industries.
