Nurturing ideas - growing success
In an ever changing and increasingly competitive market place, innovation is integral to business growth and success. The Co-Innovate Programme (supported by the European Union's INTERREG VA funding), is designed to support SMEs and micro-businesses in Northern Ireland, the Border Region of Ireland, and Western Scotland to deliver success through innovation.
The aim of the Programme is to develop the innovation capability of the local businesses and increase the number actively participating in cross-border research.
