The Enterprise Ireland Innovation Voucher call is now open from Wednesday the 12th of June 2019 until Tuesday the 31st of December 2019. This year there has been a change in the programme and the next call for standard Innovation Vouchers opens on Wednesday the 12th of June and will stay open on a continuous basis until the year end 2019. Previously when applying for an Enterprise Ireland Innovation Voucher you could only apply during one of the scheduled open calls which would open at three set times throughout the year.
The Enterprise Ireland Innovation Vouchers are available to assist a company or companies to explore a business opportunity with a registered knowledge provider. Irish based SME’s can apply for vouchers, valued at €5,000 each, which can be redeemed with research performing higher education institutes in return for innovative solutions to small business challenges. This programme provides an opportunity for SME’s to engage in small scale or early stage research and development activities which are particularly well suited to exploring new ideas or concepts. Innovation Vouchers can be used for innovation such as new product/process development, business model development, service delivery or development, customer interface and tailored training in innovation management.
