Innovation Vouchers

Innovation Vouchers worth €5,000 are available to assist a company or companies to explore a business opportunity or problem. The Innovation Vouchers initiative is open to all small and medium-sized limited companies registered in Ireland.

Innovation 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

  • innovation/technology audit

Innovation Vouchers can be exchanged for knowledge transfer projects from the knowledge provider. For the purposes of this initiative, a knowledge transfer project is defined as one that transfers knowledge of a scientific, technological or innovative nature that it is new to the small enterprise. The small enterprise may then use the new knowledge to innovate a product, process or service.

DIT Hothouse has worked very successfully with small and medium-sized in the past, who have availed of Innovation Vouchers and other initiatives which have led to longer term partnerships and follow on research projects.
