Grant – Innovation Vouchers

Innovation Vouchers – New Standard Application Round (Island of Ireland)
The Innovative Vouchers scheme, which builds links between Ireland’s public Knowledge Providers and small businesses, has opened a new Standard application round for 2014.

The programme’s objective is to strengthen relationships between Ireland’s education institutions and businesses to create a cultural shift in the small business community’s approach to innovation.

Each Innovation Voucher is worth €5,000. The vouchers can be used for any kind of innovation such as:

  • new product/process development;
  • new business model development;
  • new service delivery and customer interface;
  • new service development;
  • tailored training in innovation management; and
  • innovation/technology audit.

All small enterprises that are registered companies in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are eligible to apply. A small enterprise is defined as a company with fewer than 50 employees and with either an annual turnover and/or annual balance sheet total not exceeding €10 million.

The next deadline for Standard applications is 29 January 2014.
