Abstract

Ireland is currently enjoying the benefits of a decade of sustained economic expansion. Our past success, while providing a platform for future growth, does not guarantee that growth. Fundamental changes in the global business environment are emerging which present exciting new opportunities and some formidable competitive challenges. Education, lifelong learning, and innovation will play an increasingly important part in future success.

Innovation has been a characteristic of the Irish indigenous software industry with growth over the past decade of 27% per annum and exports reaching €1bn in 2003. Ireland has been particularly successful in nurturing e-Learning software development companies. In parallel with the development of the e-Learning sector in Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland has transformed the research culture at Irish third-level institutions. Now there is an opportunity to connect an innovative sector with world leading research.

The Research Agenda Forum was established to bring Industry and Academia together to define the strategic intersection between great science and industry needs. Success in this endeavour will provide a solid intellectual platform for software companies resident in Ireland. The e-Learnign Research Roadmap developed in the forum and presented here provides a framework for world class research in e-Learning.
