A look back at Enterprise Ireland’s Big Ideas 2019.

In its 11th year, the Enterprise Ireland’s Big Ideas event illustrates the commercialisation potential of the academic research emerging from Ireland’s higher education system across a range of sectors. In 2019 Big Ideas included a wayfinding system to save the lives of firefighters, a motion sensor that can test and track athletic performance and a technology for coating seeds which reduces the need for pesticides and fertilisers.
