DCU Showcase gives companies opportunities to engage with research experts
For companies interested in innovation through R&D, the DCU Business Matchmaker and Research Showcase 2017 gives firms the opportunity to meet face-to-face with experts who are actively engaged in research that has applications across many industry sectors. The event, being held on the 11th of May in The Helix, DCU gives companies the chance to outline to research experts the challenges they are facing, explore new ideas and the various options to collaborate and fund future R&D projects. Companies with both an established R&D programme and start-ups with new ideas are all welcome to attend this free event.
Following a light breakfast, an overview of research at DCU will be delivered where attendees will hear from companies who have previously collaborated with DCU and speak about innovation. This will be followed by short, pre-scheduled, one-to-one meetings that will take place between individual DCU researchers or business development specialists and industry representatives who are interested in extending their R&D capability by working with DCU.
Companies are invited to register at www.b2match.eu/dcubusinessmatchmaker2017. At registration, companies can also create a profile of their company and their areas of interest. They will then be able to request individual meetings with DCU researchers who have expertise in their field. Additionally, firms can request meetings with other enterprises of interest.
