InterTradeIreland is a cross-border organisation that has been given responsibility by both Governments to boost North/South economic co-operation to the mutual benefit of Northern Ireland and Ireland.
Amongst its programmes, Fusion is an all-island programme which enables knowledge and technology transfer between business and academia to support innovation and increase capability. FUSION develops and facilitates three-way cross-border partnerships and projects between companies, graduates and third level institutions.
I am the South West Regional consultant for Fusion. I identify companies to participate in the programme, assess their eligibility, find academic partners, advise on applications and manage the projects on behalf of Helix.
