Is your business eligible for grants? 25.01.08

COMPANIES in Inishowen are being urged to check if they qualify for help under the Research and Development Grant Scheme.
The scheme has been revised and simplified and will make €500 million available for research and development funding to companies across all sectors. Donegal North East T.D., Deputy Niall Blaney yesterday encouraged Donegal businesses to apply.
“The funding will be made available over the remainder of the Government’s
Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (2008-2013) and will see job creation agencies, Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, invest more than €500 million which will used to support R&D and continue to secure jobs in all parts of the country," said the Fianna Fáil deputy.
“The new grant scheme will also be streamlined to make the application process as straightforward as possible for companies."
Projects already receiving funding in Ireland include research into how to combat disease, improve communication technology and develop products of the future.
“This approach to producing high-quality R&D ensures that Ireland remains a base for high tech quality jobs in the years ahead. I'm delighted that this new scheme encourages R&D collaboration between companies, particularly among small businesses," added Deputy Blaney.
