Innovation Ambassadors Programme

Innovation plays a vital role in sport. Through new ideas, change and renewal, innovation shapes how sport is played, viewed and organised.

Sport Ireland has developed a new Innovation Ambassadors Programme which aims to support innovation capacity in Irish sport.

The goal is simple. Develop a network of innovation leaders within Irish sporting bodies who can plan and lead new innovation projects for Irish sport.

This  8 –week programme is open to all NGBs, LSPs and Sport Ireland funded bodies and aims to develop skills and knowledge for innovation in sport and assist individuals working in sport to develop and lead innovation projects. The programme will also assist in the preparation of Sport Ireland Innovation for Sport Inclusion project applications.

Full details about the programme are available in the brochure below.

The next programme will commence in early October (Friday 4th) and will run for 8 weeks (2hrs per week) 

Applications for this programme are open throughout 2024 and courses will run once places are filled. Please contact for more info if required. 

All participants who complete this programme receive a Graduate Certificate from Sport Ireland.
