Promote geographic clustering of technology and science companies and start-ups. A certain level of clustering is crucial to attracting tech workers and industry. This should involve tax breaks for the right kinfd of development in the right areas subject to the right kind of flexible and generous leases being granted. At the moment every town in Ireland wants to jump on the R&D bandwagon. That approach will backfire and must be nipped in the bud. An area in North County Dublin along Metro North would seem ideal. Easy to access from the main airport, wide open for the necesssary development, close to the biggest city which international people might be attracted to.

The corridor between Dublin and Belfast generally is our best bet. A lot of Metro North goes through low density suburbs. The cost of it would fund a lot of business start ups.

Warning over website that takes ownership of ideas

THE best way to have a good idea is to have lots of ideas.

This certainly seems to be the logic behind The Ideas Campaign, a new website aiming to stimulate the economy with proposals from the public.

But be warned — if you really have do have a brilliant brainwave, you might want to read the small print.

Because according to the terms and conditions of the campaign, set up by Aileen O’Toole, Sunday Business Post co-founder and managing director of an internet consultancy, you must "part company with your submitted idea without any compensation to you".

"So, you have a good idea. The people behind the Ideas Campaign think it’s good, and now it belongs to them," says Diarmuid MacShane, head of ValueIreland.com, a consumer watchdog website.

"My main concern is that they are not publishing the ideas or making them available for people to see."

This was the lady who came on Prime Time gushing about her website, www.IdeasCampaign.ie after which she got 2000 hits instantly.

Intellectual property rights must be getting protected on the site if no one can see the ideas, although the above Examiner report is warning against using.

Anyone know the mechanics of getting your ideas registered - would the best course of action be to go to your local IDA office or something?
