FUSION: Academics

An InterTradeIreland FUSION consultant will assist the company to identify the necessary expertise which you could provide.  On agreement between your institute and the company, a partnership is formed – the academic support that you provide will be key to the success of the project.

The partnership will:

  • Be cross-border (the company and your university or college must be from opposite jurisdictions).
  • Submit a joint application for support from InterTradeIreland to carry out an innovative and collaborative technology transfer project.
  • Recruit a relevant graduate who will work in the company to drive the project forward.  You will support the graduate, enabling them to operate as the conduit for knowledge and technology transfer from your university/college into the company.
