Technology Centres – Industry Led Research, IRDG Event will focus on how business can leverage research.


This week InishTech will present at the Industry Research and Development Group IRDG Event on April 10th which is being held to help Irish businesses better understand how they can benefit from the research being carried out at Ireland’s 15 Technology Centres.

The aim of the Technology Centres programme is to introduce companies to the research expertise in Higher Education Institutes in order to generate innovative technologies. The ultimate objective is to use these technologies to sustain existing industries, identify and grow new business sectors to create jobs and increase exports.

Aidan Gallagher, CEO of InishTech, who is a founding member of IC4, the Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce, will be presenting at the conference. As a technology SMB InishTech benefits significantly from participation in IC4 and will be sharing experiences of how to best leverage the research opportunities when working with Technology Centres.

The conference will be held in the Clarion Hotel, Liffey Valley, Dublin. For more information see
