Overview of Enterprise Ireland Innovation Voucher Initiative

If you wish to apply for an Innovation Voucher, there are two options:

  1. Standard Applications - open for applications on a semi-competitive call basis (see schedule below).
  2. 50-50 co-funded Fast Track Applications - may be submitted anytime.
