On Wednesday 5th June, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys, together with Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, Paschal Donohoe, will open Call 2 of the Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund (DTIF).
The launch will take place at a wider event to launch Pillar 1 of Future Jobs Ireland, which is focused on “Embracing Innovation and Technological Change”.
The DTIF is about developing and deploying innovative technologies for commercial use through collaborations between enterprises in Ireland, drawing on excellent publicly-funded research where that is appropriate. DTIF Call 1 saw 27 collaborative projects funded with
over 100 partners involved.
DTIF Call 2 seeks to fund many more exciting collaborations. It will focus on collaborative research partnerships between enterprises and will also allow for Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) including universities and other institutes to be involved.
