The Engineering and Physical Science Research Council centre for doctoral training is collaborating with the world-leading SFI research centres and UK higher education institutions as part of a €38.6 million research and development project.

CÚRAM is the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices and it has now received a substantial amount of the €38.6 million joint funding for doctoral training as part of a UK and Ireland joint initiative in training students.

The funding is the outcome of a new partnership between science foundation Ireland and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which is part of UK Research and Innovation.

A large portion of the funding will go towards training students in non-animal technology and regenerative medicine sectors. The training will result in students possessing multidisciplinary, high-value skills in the design, creation and application of new non-animal technology platforms to accelerate therapeutic discovery.

Research and development collaborations between Ireland and the UK as well as the rest of the world is a priority for the Irish government and the department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation is thrilled to be working with the EPSRC on the program.

Innovative industries and companies are greatly supported by the government and can be eligible to receive an R&D Tax Incentive. Swanson Reed R&D Tax Consultants help companies to claim this incentive and help ensure that companies receive the maximum eligible amount.
