A conference discussing how to make connections and collaborations between business and third-level research and development is being held in Kilkenny this week.
Amplitude is an annual conference led by the technology transfer offices of Waterford Institute of Technology and Institute of Technology Carlow, which aims to break down barriers between business and research and help industries understand the impact of research on their sectors.
Discover how to approach a research centre and foster a successful collaborative relationship with the goal of improving your company’s research and development capabilities. Our team of academic experts will outline how you can access funding from National and EU Calls and offer advice on how to submit a winning proposal.
Amplitude is an unique opportunity for companies, particularly multi-nationals and SME’s, to understand the complex world of collaborating with research and accessing large funding pots.
