New to Research & Development

UCD researchers can work with companies that have not yet engaged in serious R&D to build both your output and internal competence.  If you have a clear vision of how you can carve out a new market through the development of new technologies, or introduce new processes, we have the experts, access to funding, and experience that can help you to make that vision a reality.

There are many ways in which you can engage with us, including:

  • a quick phone conversation with an expert
  • engagement in an introductory research project
  • a student internship which allows a two-way transfer of knowledge.  

Funding mechanisms such as innovation vouchers from Enterprise Ireland can help get this relationship started – so there is no risk to your company.
