Innovation Vouchers are a great way to kick start your R&D project by providing 5,000 euro or more in research from Ireland’s 3rd level universities.
What Are Innovation Vouchers?
The Innovation Voucher initiative was developed to build links between Ireland’s public knowledge providers (i.e. higher education institutes, public research bodies) and small businesses. Innovation Vouchers worth €5,000 are available to assist a company or companies to explore a business opportunity or problem with a registered knowledge provider.
If you wish to apply for an Innovation Voucher, there are two options:
- Standard Applications – open for applications on a semi-competitive call basis (see below).
- 50-50 co-funded Fast Track Applications – may be submitted anytime.
