  • Applied Research Enhancement Programme Centres of Excellence for Enterprise Development Contact: deirdre.brougham@enterprise-ireland.com or paddy.byrne@enterprise-ireland.com The Applied Research Enhancement (ARE) programme is supported by Enterprise Ireland and the National Development Plan. Since the EI ARE Programme has commenced in 2005, 17 applied research centres of excellence in 11 Institutes of Technology have been funded with seed funding in order of €1.25 to €2.0 million for a 3 to 5 year period. This results in a total financial commitment of approximately €23 million to date. This seed funding provides for procurement of a dedicated core research team led by an industrial experienced Centre Manager, dedicated lab space and provision of specialised equipment. The objectives of these centres are • To enable regional development by introducing innovative technological solutions through collaboration with industrial partners • To develop the next generation technology platforms for the benefit of Irish based industry through a dedicated applied research strategy The centres can be divided into 3 technology clusters • ICT & Software • Bio Life Sciences & Pharmaceutical • Bio-Medical Devices & Materials Details of the 16 current ARE centres and their contact details can be found in the following pages.
