Many companies have said to me that once they have got over the setup phase they know they need to think about where to next? – how can they be innovative? how can they bring R&D into their business?
One way to start looking at this is by working with a university and leveraging their expertise to bring you along that path. It can however, be difficult to get access to the right expertise and it can be a bit daunting to navigate complex university environments.
To address this Dublin City Universtiy wants to help companies to see how it all works. We want companies to come and have an informal chat about their business and their ideas directly with researchers to see where the conversation takes them. Companies can also find out about the best mechanisms to fund R&D in their business through access to Irish state and European funding.
If this is of interest you should come along to our Business Matchmaker Event in The Helix on May 7th. Register your company online and tell us a bit about your company and if you have any particular area you would like to discuss. A matchmaking facility will be available where you can request to meet specific researchers or they can request to meet you.
It’s a FREE no obligation conversation that may yield results now or in the future for you.
