About the FUSION Programme

Supporting cross-border business on the island of Ireland through developing and embedding innovation.

Product development and innovation is at the heart of growth but often needs costly technology support. FUSION can provide that support by helping to fund a high caliber science, engineering or technology graduate and partnering you with a third level institution with specific expertise.

The graduate is employed by you and is based in your company throughout the project (12 – 18 months) with mentoring from the academic partner and InterTradeIreland FUSION consultant.

Innovative improvements are one of our core values, we have been working hard behind the scenes on enhancing the FUSION programme. Innovation Boost powered by Fusion is coming soon.
