SME’s based in the Republic of Ireland work with academic partners in Northern Ireland, while the graduates are selected through an open recruitment process and take up employment within the company. In essence, the graduate becomes a dedicated resource working in the company, on an innovation project, supported and supervised by an academic partner with appropriate sectoral expertise. Projects can focus on developing new products or services for commercialisation or on optimising the efficiency of the company’s internal operations. Recent projects include:

  • InvoiceFair, based in NexusUCD, are collaborating with Ulster University to develop a data analytics platform for financial risk assessment in new markets.
  • ITS, a design engineering company in Co. Cork, partnered with Queen’s University Belfast to develop new robotic vision functions for use on production and packing lines.
