A comprehensive directory of all innovation supports for research centres and technology centres has been launched yesterday by the Irish Government.

The announcement was made at the Innovation Showcase, where the Government laid out its ambitious Innovation 2020 science programme for the next number of years, which includes the plan to almost double R&D funding from €2.9bn to €5bn.

Revealing the directory, Minister for Skills, Research and Innovation, Damien English, TD, noted the inclusion of supports as a major step up on previous documentation.

Providing a roadmap of the entire R&D ecosystem in Ireland, the latest directory goes far further than previous services-only editions :

“We want to connect business with publicly-funded researchers and the supports available to help entrepreneurs to grow their business and create jobs in Ireland”, said English.

Including all key financial supports for innovation available to companies from the State, as well as information on the key national research centres of scale, the new publication “provides a practical guide that is easy to navigate” :

“We want those who are new to research collaboration to explore all the options available to them and we want those who have existing connections within the research system to engage further and take advantage of all the supports available”, added Minister for Skills, Research and Innovation.
