Innovation Week

UCC Innovation's first ever Innovation Week will take place across the UCC Campus from April 15th - 19th 2024, with events happening every day throughout the week. The aim of Innovation Week is to showcase some of the excellent innovations from across the UCC ecosystem, and to encourage UCC students, graduates and researchers to think about new ways to create economic and societal impact.

Many of the events are multi-disciplinary and include exciting collaborations between different Colleges and Research Institutes in UCC.  The Colleges of Science, Engineering and Food Sciences and Medicine and Health will have a collaborative event on Monday which will showcase 8 different innovations and their pathway to creating impact. Other events during the week include a showcase of recent start-ups from the IGNITE Graduate Business programme, a workshop on how researchers can apply for Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation Funding, training on intellectual property, and a fireside chat with UCC’s Entrepreneurs-in-residence.
