Innovation Vouchers worth 5000 euro are available from Enterprise Ireland. The applying company does not have to be a client of Enterprise Ireland.
The 5k can be spent with any 3rd Level College in Ireland to address a ‘knowledge question’ (technical/commercial challenge). There are certain criteria to be met but these are not unduly onerous. The voucher will buy up to 80 hours of Academic time.
