Innovation, Knowledge and Technology Transfer Management

Innovation isn't Rocket Science!

Innovation is relevant for all companies, large or small, services or manufacturing. The thing is that many business owners find it hard to identify with Innovation or see how it might benefit them, or even where the opportunities might lie. Oonagh is the programme consultant for the InterTradeIreland FUSION programme in the Connacht / West Midlands region. The FUSION programme supports SMEs in identifying the opportunity and putting in place the procedures to implement innovative products or processes. 

The scope of the technology may be wide ranging, covering a number of activities and applications. Potential topics include:

  • New Product Development
  • Process Streamlining
  • Lean Manufacturing
  • Waste reduction
  • Improvement in Design Capabilities and so on.

If you would like to discuss whether your project would be eligible, please contact Oonagh and she will arrange to meet you. After that, the next step is for Oonagh to identify a qualified academic partner for you and will then facilitate the funding application process for you both.
