Placemaking and Clusters
Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces.
It capitalises on a local community's assets, inspiration and potential, with the intention of creating public spaces that promote people's health, happiness, and wellbeing. A business cluster is a concentration of interconnected enterprise, suppliers and associated institutions in a particular field. Clusters are considered to increase the productivity with which companies can compete, nationally and globally.
Sample projects under the Placemaking and Cluster pillar are:
- Enterprise Space
Enterprise and co-working spaces provide start-ups, entrepreneurs and freelance workers with much needed space, services, supports or links to supports and access to networks, knowledge and collaboration opportunities. These spaces therefore constitute a vital element of the start-up and enterprise ecosystem.
In order to gain a better understanding of enterprise and co-working spaces in Dublin and their impact, a report was conducted by the Economic Development Office.
The report provides an overview and analysis of enterprise and co-working space in Dublin along with the identification of trends and insights. The report and associated research was produced as part of the Dublin Regional Enterprise Plan to 2020.
