Benefits to Business

Innovation gives business the competitive edge. Innovation in process, product or know-how improves business competitiveness, creates new assets, and increases the value of a company. Innovation improves base-line profits.

The key focus of Ireland's dynamic knowledge transfer system is bringing innovative ideas to full market realisation, with over 700 companies engaging annually in research partnerships with Technology Centres, Research Centres, Universities, Institutes of Technology and the numerous other research-performing organisations in Ireland.
