Enterprise Ireland have awarded Commercialisation Fund Programme grants totaling €380k to a number of NCAD research teams:
Bio-Box – Innovative Waste Disposal
Kate Cronin and Liz Fingleton
Gazelle – User-Centred Design of Domestic Products
Kevin Doherty and Ronan Murphy
CARA – Universal Armature for Wheechair
As Principal Investigator for the projects, I have the pleasure to oversee the projects and work with these talented NCAD design researchers.
The aim of the Commercialisation Fund Programme is to improve the competitiveness of the Irish economy through the creation of technology based start-up companies and the transfer of innovations developed in Higher Education Institutes and Research Performing Organisations to industry in Ireland.
