Happy New Year to all visitors to our website.
We were delighted to start 2011 on a positive note by winning a tender to work with the South-East Regional Authority (SERA) on a competition for third-level students, aimed at fostering entrepreneurship within the Irish education system.
The competition is being organised as part of the YES (Youth Entrepreneurship Strategies) Project, which is part-funded by the EU’s INTERREG IVC. The YES Project involves partners from eight regions within different EU States, with Ireland represented by SERA. The overall aim of the project is to increase the number of entrepreneurs in Europe and accelerate European competitiveness. The competition for third-level students will be one element of Ireland’s involvement in the YES Project, and we will be posting further details on the competition here over the coming months.
In other news, January and February look set to be very busy for DHR Communications. As well as our work with SERA, we will be working with CARDI on the launch of research on end-of-life care standards; we’re assisting the Dignity Project in the organisation of a major conference on sex trafficking in Ireland, which will take place next month; and we will be delivering training in media and political communications skills to a number of different groups. We will also be continuing our work on The Digital Hub‘s DARE2BDRINKAWARE.ie competition and the WebActivate Programme, and we are project managing the week-long programme of events planned to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Ballymun Youth Action Project in March. So busy times ahead!
