About the FUSION Programme

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.
