WIT & TSSG can help SMEs in the South East take their business to the next level

JOS_image_web_229_300Tuesday, 30th September: “With the announcement of Horizon 2020 last year, Europe has provided a pot of money that’s available to SMEs, as well as multinationals, to take their business to the next level and this presents an amazing opportunity for SMEs, the lifeblood of the Irish economy”, according to Dr James O’Sullivan, Technology Transfer Manager at Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT).

“The trick now is how do we draw down that money and put it to good use. We are fortunate to have that expertise in the South East as WIT has been working with companies, leveraging research funding from Irish and European sources very successfully for over the last ten years and most importantly, translating that funding into real successes.”

Next Friday, as part of ‘European SME Week’ which is organised by Waterford Chamber and our local Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), two members of WIT staff, Dr O’Sullivan and Kevin Doolin from TSSG, will host FREE workshops aimed at local business and potential entrepreneurs.
