Case Studies

Building relationships with indigenous Irish industry is a key objective for DCU. Through Enterprise Ireland’s Innovation Partnerships scheme, smaller Irish companies are able to engage in applied research which can enhance their products and processes. In this way emerging technologies are licensed to indigenous companies and brought to market based on clear product and market needs defined by the industrial partners. Below are some case studies of companies which have collaborated with DCU on research projects or have emerged directly from DCU's research activities.
