We support businesses in winning innovation funding through Irish and European grants.

What Are Grants?

R&D and european grants represent substantial financial support provided by the Irish government to assist companies in advancing the research and development of groundbreaking products, services, and processes. These grants serve as crucial investments in fostering innovation.

If you’re actively engaged in research and development endeavors aimed at addressing technical uncertainties, you may qualify for R&D grant funding. Such initiatives hold the potential to unlock opportunities and drive significant technological advancements.

To secure a successful grant application, it’s imperative to provide a comprehensive description of the newly discovered commercial prospect, your strategic plan for harnessing it, and the anticipated transformative impact on the market. This level of detail underscores the significance of your project and strengthens your eligibility for R&D grant support.
