The TSSG’s Innovation & Commercialisation Centre (TICC) mission is to help Irish industry compete in international markets. Commercialising our scientific research creates employment and our engagement in European Framework Research Programmes helps establish international industry networks in Ireland and the South East, generating knowledge that is effectively transferred to Irish Industry.
The TSSG has created many high-tech research jobs through its commercial work and has also helped create jobs within the spin out companies it has created. Additionally, TSSG has attracted many expatriates to return to Ireland, and have inspired the best and brightest global foreign nationals to live and work in Ireland.
