Develop the products and services of tomorrow

Enterprise Ireland supports researchers and venture scientists taking their first steps in commercialising their research and turning it into a start-up business. Our wide range of support enables researchers and scientists who want to develop a new technology based on their research.  

If you’re in a business and want to explore Research and Innovation supports and opportunities, please visit our Research and Innovation page.

Enterprise Ireland recognises that building a start-up from research is challenging due to resource constraints, capital limitations, talent shortages and limited partnership opportunities. Our goal is to create an ecosystem that connects innovators, partners and investors to facilitate the journey from idea to commercial success.

Technology Transfer Office

Facilitates the transition of academic research and inventions into real-world applications and technology.

Commercialisation Fund

Provides third-level researchers with the support needed to transform commercially relevant research into a business. 

Working with companies, or clusters of companies, offers many benefits to researchers. Through collaboration, researchers have the opportunity to transfer technology into a company and see it in action in the marketplace. Enterprise Ireland provides funding for your research team and offers practical experience and the opportunity for students to work on placement in companies.

Innovation voucher

Helps businesses to build connections with Ireland and Northern Ireland’s publicly funded Knowledge Providers to explore business problems and uncover opportunities.

Innovation Partnership

Facilitates collaboration between Irish companies and research institutes, driving innovation, impactful change, and the development of new products, processes, and knowledge.

Disruptive Technology Innovation Fund

This €500 million fund leverages disruptive technologies for business Growth to drive better collaboration between Ireland’s world-class research base and industry.
