Innovation 

Developing Ireland's Smart Economy 

The ultimate aim of UCD Conway Institute is to contribute to the development of Ireland as a knowledge economy. We will play our role within the TCD-UCD Innovation Alliance, a partnership working with the education sector, the State and its agencies alongside the business and venture capital communities to develop a world-class ecosystem for innovation that will drive enterprise development in Ireland.

Supporting Technology Transfer 

Working closely with NovaUCD and Enterprise Ireland Biotechnology Directorate, UCD Conway Institute ensures our researchers have access to support services including technology development grants, practical business advice, continuing professional education in the area of intellectual property management, and incubation facilities to assist in the establishment and development of campus companies. 

Campus companies involving Conway Fellows 

Building Partnerships 

Our proactive policy for the translation of research has seen many Conway Fellows establishing links with the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors through collaborative programmes, contract research and campus companies. Systems Biology Ireland, the new Science Foundation Ireland (SFI)-funded Centre for Science, Engineering and Technology, is based in UCD Conway Institute and supported by researchers in NUI, Galway. The new centre received €14.8 million from SFI and a further combined contribution of almost €4.7 million by industry partners - Ark Therapeutics, Hewlett Packard, Servier, Agilent Technologies, Siemens Ireland and Protagen AG. In total, 69 highly skilled personnel will be working to deliver the Systems Biology Ireland’s research programme.
