IDA Ireland Innovation Vouchers

With an Innovation Voucher from IDA Ireland, your organisation receives funding to work with a knowledge provider like Trinity College Dublin. The Learnovate Centre is a research centre in Trinity College Dublin focused on organisational learning and technology-enhanced learning so your company can ‘spend’ your voucher with us and we complete a project on your behalf that helps you solve challenges or explore opportunities in your organisation.

We will help you identify funding options and support you in applying. We can help maximise your funding and minimise the paperwork. To find out what funding may be available for your organisation, Register your Interest in Funding.
