On 6th December 2013 IRDG hosted an Innovation Practice Group visit for members to AMBER at Trinity College Dublin. It was a fantastic occasion to see exclusively the research activities underway at the Centre and to understand the ways in which companies can engage with AMBER to support their R&D and Innovation. Significant amounts of funding are available to help companies collaborate with the third level research colleges and institutes, and this event highlighted the expertise and equipment that is available to help companies. (More details on AMBER at the bottom of this post).
