The Campus Company Development Programme (CCDP) is the main training programme run by NovaUCD to support academic entrepreneurs.

The CCDP, which has run annually since 1996, is a nine-month, part-time enterprise support initiative designed to suit the timetable of busy researchers and academics. It comprises a mix of practical training and consultancy support including 12 half-day workshops, one-to-one advice and consultancy meetings, and a series of networking events.

The aim of the CCDP is to assist academic and research entrepreneurs in the establishment and development of knowledge-intensive enterprises.

On completion of the CCDP participants will have developed a business plan and a strategy for its implementation.
