Funding Mechanisms


Innovation Partnerships

The Innovation Partnership Programme encourages Irish based companies to work with Irish colleges to access their expertise and resources to develop new and improved products, processes, services, and generate new knowledge and know-how.  

Enterprise Ireland provides grants of up to 80% towards eligible costs of the research project.  The proposal process and administration of the project is managed by Tyndall.


Example: Under an EI Innovation Partnership agreement, Irish start-up, Endeco, and Tyndall collaborated on the development of a wireless electricity metering system based on the Tyndall wireless sensor mote technology. The system enables actuation and control of lighting and refrigeration systems in commercial premises.  Under the collaboration, Tyndall licensed an energy demand management platform that can enable power savings of 20-30%. The market for this is projected to grow to in excess of €8bn by 2020. Endeco have secured additional funding as a direct result of the successful demonstration of this system which will help lead to 30 new jobs.
