Enterprise Ireland Innovation Voucher

Do you lack resources and expertise to drive growth through innovation?

Overcome a lack of time, or expertise, and engage in research and development (R&D) with our learning designers, expert technologists, user experience practitioners, and business strategists. Even small companies can benefit from R&D with an Innovation Voucher from Enterprise Ireland. We can help you develop, deploy or better understand technology in learning.

What is an Innovation Voucher?

Enterprise Ireland Innovation Vouchers encourage links between small and medium-sized enterprises and Irish higher education institutions. Companies can apply for a €5K voucher from Enterprise Ireland to access R&D expertise in universities and other knowledge providers. 

How does it work?

You apply for a €5K voucher from Enterprise Ireland to explore a business challenge or opportunity. You choose an Irish higher education institution, such as Trinity College Dublin where Learnovate is located. We complete €5K worth of R&D on your behalf to help you solve EdTech and eLearning challenges, or explore an opportunity to innovate with learning technologies. You own any IP generated by the project. 

How much does it cost?

Enterprise Ireland gives you €5K funding to spend on R&D services with a public knowledge provider. The only contribution your company makes is a VAT payment of €1150, which you may reclaim. 

Am I eligible?

You may be able to apply if your company is: 

  • for-profit
  • small or medium-sized
  • limited
  • registered in Ireland

We will help you apply and check your eligibility.
