DCU  - Business Matchmaker 2015

Welcome to DCU - Business Matchmaker 2015

Event Outline

This is an opportunity for companies to meet face-to-face with experts at Dublin City University who are actively engaged in research that has applications across many industry sectors. You can profile your business, outline the challenges for your business, explore new ideas and understand the various options to collaborate and fund R&D projects through state and European supports. Companies with both an established R&D programme and start-ups with new ideas are welcome.

The purpose of these meetings is to facilitate targeted exchanges between academia and industry and explore opportunities for collaboration through access to talent, knowledge transfer, training and industry/academic partnerships.

Following a light breakfast the plenary session will outline research at DCU and how the university collaborates with industry. You will hear from companies who have previously collaborated with DCU. This will be followed by pre-scheduled one to one meetings which will take place between individual DCU researchers/ business development managers and industry representatives who are interested in extending their R&D capability by working with universities.
