Study of innovation in service sector industries

CM International undertook a sector-based study for Forfás, Ireland’s national policy advisory body for enterprise, trade, science, technology and innovation.

The study examined barriers and drivers of innovation in six service sectors, chosen because they have a significant presence in the Irish economy, where they have potential to contribute to international trade. Our work has examined the sectors in Ireland relative to global trends, and involved extensive desk research and stakeholder interviews. The final report made a series of recommendations for the future focus of innovation policy in Ireland.
