Funding & Collaboration for Business Innovation, 26th March, Limerick

Saving you time, energy & effort on your Innovation Funding Strategy by bringing all the key players together for you

26th March 2019 – Radisson Blu Limerick – 9.00am – 3.00pm

IRDG has extensive knowledge on the variety of funding and support programmes available to businesses who seek to grow through R&D and innovation.  State supports continue to evolve and change e.g. the recently announced Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund worth €180m over the next 4 years.Supports including research capability, subject matter expertise, specialised equipment and finance are available to indigenous and multinational industries to help business innovation. The challenge for most businesses is being up to date with the variety available and evaluating options – be that around sourcing suitable partners, the funding and finance schemes, or the merits of collaborative activity versus in-house programmes.  On the day we’ll be featuring:  

  • R&D Tax Credits
  • Knowledge Development Box
  • Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund (DTIF)
  • Innovation Vouchers / Partnerships / Feasibility Grants
  • Collaborative R,D&I via SFI, Technology Centres, Gateways etc
  • Programmes to build R,D&I capacity & resources
  • Horizon 2020 & other EU programmes
  • Loan Finance
  • Exhibitions by 3rd level collaboration partners

Part of IRDG’s service is working with members on a one-to-one basis to advise around this challenge. But we also create this unique forum which brings together all the key players supporting business innovation in the one room, to directly connect with and meet the industry audience. 

Meet the Researchers

A large number of Exhibitors from across the Third Level Research sector will also be there to demonstrate their capabilities and discuss potential collaborative opportunities and funding programmes. 


The seminar will take place at the Radisson Blu Limerick

from 9.00am to 3.00pm.
