There are a number of ways to engage with the IERC. Our primary engagement with industry and research organisations is achieved through our collaborative research funding programme. The Centre can co-fund industry collaborative projects to a maximum of 65%. There is a 35% minimum co-funding requirement from industry partners (10% Cash and 25% In-Kind contributions). All funding awards are subject to successful completion of external peer technical and commercial review and signoff by the IERC Centre Steering Committee.
The IERC holds F2F meetings with prospective industry partners to understand their preferred commercial roadmap and to identify areas of need that could be addressed through collaborative research projects. The IERC team works with companies to identify additional value chain partners, mutual research interests and the research expertise required. the IERC and relevant research experts then work with the industry consortium to co-define a collaborative research project.
Interested industry partners should contact our Head of Business Development Dr. Matthew Kennedy at matthew.kennedy(at)ierc(dot)ie.
Eligible research performing organisations can be funded directly by the IERC and industry partners to work on the delivery of collaborative research projects.
Interested research partners should contact info(at)ierc(dot)ie for more information.
