Free technology, entrepreneurial, investment and funding clinics featuring one-to-one sessions between attendees and the people behind some of the world’s most influential companies will be held throughout the day. These sessions will provide invaluable advice and guidance on how attendees can use technology, facilitate investment, drive innovation, collaboration, and foster new commercial relationships.
Particular attention will be paid to matching attendees needs to the most appropriate funding mechanisms for their enterprises and providing updates on the latest funding calls, supports and investment opportunities available from Enterprise Ireland, H2020 and Science Foundation Ireland, as well as routes to access innovation and research resources from across Ireland and beyond.
