This 4th Annual Applied Research Forum hosted by Enterprise Ireland took place on Tuesday, 21st June, 2011 in the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin 8. Minister Sean Sherlock, Minister for Research and Innovation will present the ‘One to Watch' Award 2011.
Researchers that are beginning the process of transferring technology to the marketplace, be it through a licence, a collaborative project with a company or group of companies, or through a spin-out company, will have an opportunity at this Forum to meet colleagues from other colleges who may be going through similar challenges and experiences.
The creation of more high value companies like these that generate jobs, exports, social and economic benefits through a strong national technology transfer system is critical to the delivery of the Government’s strategy ‘Building Ireland’s Smart Economy’.
Enterprise Ireland is working in partnership with the Technology Transfer Offices to deliver a single, strong system to transfer valuable intellectual property from research into industry. The spread of the TTOs in colleges around the country adds to the strength of the system – the group of professionals involved meets regularly and has shared targets for increasing the number of new companies and knowledge transferred out of the third level system in its entirety.
