10 May Technology Centres Exhibiting at MASC 2023
Press Release: Enterprise Ireland Technology Centres exhibiting at the Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference RDS 23rd/24th of May
Nine technology centres bridge gap between research and industry
The Manufacturing & Supply Chain exhibition represents an excellent opportunity to meet the Enterprise Ireland Technology Centres who are delivering keynote talks and hosting exhibition stands. The Technology Centre programme is a joint initiative between Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland. It allows Irish companies and multinationals to work together on market focused strategic R&D projects in collaboration with research institutions.
There are 9 technology centres across 10 locations in Ireland, spanning a range of sectors including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, engineering, ICT, education/ training, finance and construction.
Technology Centres work with more than 260 companies to provide break-through research. Research, development and innovation (RD&I) activities are a proven game changer when it comes to commercial success. According to Enterprise Ireland’s Annual Business Review survey of client companies, client companies who invest in R&D using the Technology Centres perform better than those who don’t use the centres for these activities. In 2020 an Enterprise Ireland report found companies that use a technology centre for their research, development, and innovation activities have 2.41 times higher turnover, 3.28 times more export sales, have almost twice the number of employees and spend 2.69 times more on R&D. For every €1 the state invests in the Technology Centres there is a 6 to 20 fold return. The Technology Centres have been recognised through awards of more than €19 million from competitive funding programmes such as EU Horizon 2020 and over €19 million from industrial investments (cash and equipment).
