In preparation for 2017, why not come and hear the stories of some successful collaborations between industry and research, and see where your business might be able to benefit in the new year? The event is on in the Kingsley Hotel, Cork on November 29th from 9.30am-11.30am.
At this event, Dr. Liam Lewis will discuss the R&D solutions that CAPPA can offer companies, while Richard Linger will talk about TEC’s assistance in the development of smart technology solutions. People often don’t consider themselves to be in the right kind of sector or role to be looking at innovation, or use the resources of a research and development expert, but innovation simply means doing things differently and better – an ambition which is applicable to all businesses!
Michelle O’Brien from Alcon Ireland will outline how the CAPPA Centre has been assisting Alcon in both short and long-term investigative studies over the past 8 years. Alcon regularly use CAPPA’s facilities to solve short term production issues and to investigate detail in current product quality and consistency.
Frank Fleming of Community Supported Seafood Ltd. will discuss how TEC assisted them in developing smart technology solutions.
Our industry speakers will outline how they have benefitted from their partnerships with the research centres and the experts will be available to answer any questions you might have about:
– Innovation vouchers
– EU-funded research projects
– New product development
– Innovations in your business plan
– Internet of Things
On the day, attendees will have the option to meet CAPPA and TEC for 1:1 meetings.
This event is free but you must register to attend here.[/fusion_text][/fullwidth]
