National Research and Innovation Centres

National Research and Innovation Centres

THEA member institutions are active participants in National R&I Centres, working with enterprise, community and academic partners to deliver impact in areas of key economic and societal development.

Technology Gateways

Technological higher education institutions have partnered with Enterprise Ireland to establish a nationwide network of 15 Technology Gateways. The Gateways offer an access point for Irish enterprise to the research and innovation expertise of these institutions, who can provide them with the R&I solutions that they need for their business. Each Technology Gateway is linked to an established research centre within its parent institution(s), and the network covers a wide breath of research themes. It is complemented by three clusters which provide a single point of contact for enterprise into a consortium of Technology Gateways working on distinct aspects of an R&I thematic area. Those clusters are Applied IOT (Internet of Things), Irish Food Tech (Food and Beverage Technologies), and EMD Ireland (Engineering Materials & Design). Details of the location and research themes of each Gateway can be found in the map below, and at www.technologygateway.ie.

SFI Research Centres

The Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Research Centres are academic-led Centres based in Higher Education Institutions, focusing on research excellence, enterprise and community collaboration, talent development and enhancing Ireland’s economy and international reputation. THEA member institutions are active partners in many of the SFI Research Centres. In addition to being founder-members of Centres, they are also continually joining up to established Centres, in particular by capitalising on their strong R&I links with enterprise. Details of the SFI Centres in which each institution is participating can be found in the map below. More information on SFI Research Centres can be found at http://www.sfi.ie/sfi-research-centres/

Technology Centres

The Technology Centres are enterprise-led R&I centres, established by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland in partnership with Higher Education Institutions and other state-funded research performing organisations. The Technology Centres allow Irish companies and multinationals to link with highly-qualified researchers to work together in developing new and innovative technologies that will enhance the competitiveness of those companies and create new jobs.  THEA member institutions are active partners many of the 8 Technology Centres, with participation growing as new Technology Centres are formed.  More information the Technology Centres can be found at https://www.enterprise-ireland.com/en/research-innovation/companies/collaborate-with-companies-research-institutes/technology-centres.html.
