Product development and innovation is at the heart of growth but often needs costly technology support. FUSION can provide that support by helping to fund a high calibre science, engineering or technology graduate and partnering you with a third level institution with specific expertise.
The graduate is employed by you and is based in your company throughout the project (12 - 18 months) with mentoring from the academic partner and InterTradeIreland FUSION consultant.
18 month support package - worth up to £44,250/€58,700 typically in the area of new product/service development
12 month support project - worth £31,000/€41,100 typically in the area of process improvement.
