There has never been a more important time to innovate your business than now. Strategic R&D has been the key to many businesses survival and adaptation to the climate we find ourselves in today.

Collaborations between industry and universities have given ignition to many major discoveries.

We fully embrace this exemplary and are dedicated to engaging with all businesses however small or large the concept may be.

To do this, the Water Institute along with all other DCU research institutes and centres work closely with DCU Invent on an ongoing basis. DCU Invent is the university’s commercialisation and technology transfer unit where they work alongside companies and organisations in bringing research to the marketplace. They are core to numerous innovative University outputs such as spin outs, spin ins, many successful innovative partnerships, development of intellectual property and licencing.
