Developed in conjunction with

Institutes of Technology Ireland

Research Support Office

The IOTI Research Support Office provides support, representation and coordination for the research and innovation activities of the 13 Institutes of Technology (IOTs).

Since 2004, the IOT sector has significantly increased its research capacity, quality and output, an effort that has been sustained in recent years.  At present, 46 regionally-based research centres and groups work across 6 thematic areas to bring new knowledge and international expertise to bear for the benefit of the national and regional communities and economies.

Outputs include peer-reviewed academic publications, books and book chapters, generation of Intellectual Property, successful patent applications and successful knowledge transfer projects. Collectively, the Institutes have worked with hundreds of Irish companies to deliver new knowledge and expertise that will have a direct impact on their competitiveness and future sustainability.

The IOT sector is demonstrating its capacity to effectively translate knowledge and technology into jobs. Researchers within the IOTs collaborate with Applied Research Enhancement (ARE) centres that are focused on industrial needs and are interacting and collaborating with national and international companies.  The IOTs are currently delivering returns on investment by supporting start-ups and SMEs in key target areas such as information and communications, biopharma, medical technologies and creative industries.

The resources available on this website provide qualitative and quantitative information about the research and innovation work of the 13 Institutes of Technology.
