Facilitating the commercialisation of research constitutes a dynamic voyage of innovation and entrepreneurship, and the TTO (Technology Transfer Office) team is continuously committed to collaborating with SETU researchers to bolster their endeavours in this realm.

Our aim is to provide comprehensive support to researchers in navigating the complexities of commercialisation, thereby facilitating the transformation of ground-breaking ideas into tangible business ventures.

Through strategic guidance, robust resources, and targeted engagement, we endeavour to empower SETU researchers to successfully navigate the intricate landscape of entrepreneurship and maximize the societal and economic impact of their innovations.

Enterprise Ireland supports researchers and venture scientists taking their first steps in commercialising their novel, deep-tech research and turning it into a commercially viable opportunity.

The Research Commercialisation Roadshow represents Enterprise Ireland’s premier Commercialisation Support Knowledge Forum, tailored specifically for innovative researchers within Irish Higher Education Institutions and non-profit Research Performing Organisations.

This event serves as a comprehensive platform to highlight the array of supports available for translating research endeavours into impactful, real-world applications. Participants can expect a detailed overview of both financial and non-financial supports, equipping researchers with the necessary knowledge and resources to effectively navigate the commercialisation process and maximize the societal and economic impact of their innovations.
