IRDG member companies maximise funding for their Innovation and R&D through Grants and Tax Credits with full support, advice and assistance.
It is becoming ever more apparent that continued investment in RD&I is not just desirable but highly necessary to continue to expand our businesses and economy. Research, development and innovation is critical to all business operations. Services innovation is becoming just as important as product or process research and development.
R&D GRANT FUNDING & TAX CREDITS
There is a variety of funding opportunities and structures available to companies be they small or large, including:
Given the array of R&D grant funding available, it can be difficult for many business owners to take the time to collate the data from multiple sources and identify the most appropriate funds to target. The processes can appear complicated and demanding. However, with the right support and advice, companies can avail of and maximise the significant supports that exist.
IRDG EXPERIENCE OF FUNDING
IRDG has experience over 20 years of supporting member companies to identify and secure the most appropriate grant funding for their initiatives. Member companies have received between €175m – €200m grant funding since we were set up in 1992. Member companies are also maximizing their tax incentives through our involvement and support on R&D Tax Credits and Intangible Assets.
We have now used all of this knowledge and experience to collate a summary of funding opportunities for companies of all sizes which is shared here on our website. As with any advice, the best way to really understand something is to discuss it. Reading this information will give you a good overview, but that is just the beginning. We would be delighted to provide any additional assistance, helping you to work through the process of identification of suitable funds and supporting you with your application.
