Join us at CONNECT IN CORK, an information morning for business and industry to highlight ways that CONNECT’s third-level, technology research can potentially benefit your company. The event is on November 29th in Cork County Hall, and runs from 09.00-13.00.
This event will include details of funding opportunities that support collaborative research agreements with CONNECT’s technology researchers in Nimbus Centre, Cork Institute of Technology, Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork, and other institutes around Ireland.
