Summary

This report on Ireland is one in a series of studies for a research project designed to identify training and education policies pursued by governments and individual firms that have contributed to innovation, technological adaptation, and skill development in manufacturing. Part 1 describes Ireland's economic, social, and educational structure and provides information on Irish industrial and technology policies, including government training policy. A 29-item bibliography is provided. Part 2 presents details of six case studies of firms that have introduced technological innovations that could be widely applied and diffused elsewhere. These include such innovations as computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, robotic welding, computerized numerical control equipment, and the introduction of microelectronics to factory automation. Each case study is divided into these areas: company profile, innovation, support for innovation, manpower use, profile, innovation, support for innovation, manpower use, training, and testing of 13 hypotheses.
