Dear Colleague,

€150,000 to help your company develop a Business to Business Partnership.

Have you got a great idea to develop an innovative product or service, but it is just too big for your company to manage alone? Do you lack some of the skills or funding to make the idea a reality?

Co-Innovate’s Business to Business programme can provide your business with the opportunity to form a strategic cross-regional Research & Innovation partnership to accelerate product development and improve your business's competitiveness.

How Can the Co-Innovate Programme Help?

If your business has an innovative idea with strong commercial potential and has found, or is searching for a strategic partner to make it happen, this programme can help.

Co-Innovate is looking for ambitious businesses across the island to collaborate and form a strategic innovation partnership with another company to get great products, services or processes off the ground. Companies that take part in Co-Innovate can benefit from pooling their expertise and resources to bring their innovations to market faster than if working alone.

Partnerships must have one partner based in ROI’s border counties and one partner based in NI/Western Scotland. Click here to view more.
