Edgescan is thrilled to announce that we have made the cut for the companies that will share a €95m funding awarded by the Irish Government for ground-breaking projects.
 
Announced under Disruptive Technologies Fund, the Government’s investment covers 29 projects across the life sciences, medical devices, ICT< artificial intelligence, manufacturing and environmental sustainability.
 
To borrow the words of Robert Troy TD, Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation:
 
“The 29 projects represent the innovativeness of companies across Ireland, from Clare to Dublin and Cork to Westmeath, coming together to bring new levels of digitalisation to a diverse range of industries, such as agriculture, healthcare, construction and more. As a small nation with limited resources, we must work together to maximise the opportunities from the investment in our enterprise sector and research institutions.”
 
“This funding will give the companies involved opportunities to grow their business, even when trading in increasingly competitive markets, through the development of innovative products and services that alter the way that the industry operates.”
 
Edgescan, in partnership with the National University of Ireland, Dublin (UCD) and a number of other key players in the Irish tech and cyber landscape, will be part of a project that aims to unlock the potential of Earth Observation (EO) data for non-specialist users by creating a new architecture. The end goal will be that of developing a sustainable internationally trading Earth Observation services sector in Ireland.
 
We are delighted to have been selected by a panel of international experts against four criteria – quality of the disruptive technology, excellence of overall approach, economic impact and sustainability and strength of the collaboration.
 
Keep an eye out for the exciting things ahead!
