Innovation is a vital component of success and growth for any company.
Sometimes this realisation can come from a place of reaction, but it is preferable for any business to be proactive in generating new ideas for their future survival and progression. Innovation is a mechanism by which a business can improve their competitive advantage and take a leading place in the market.
Nutrition science is moving at a fast pace, and consumers are increasingly aware of the link between the food they eat and their health. There is a growing demand for healthier more nutritious food products, manufactured sustainably. More and more people want food that is better for them and better for the planet. Sports science research provides new ways to improve sports performance in elite athletes, as well as linking the benefits of exercise to mental and physical wellbeing in all of us.
The technological advances in science and technology allow for greater innovation all the time. Processes can be improved and modernised, products can be enhanced, and new products can be developed.
Innovation drives the success of a company, and in turn drives the growth of the Irish economy. There are many different supports available to companies who may not have their own research and development facilities. The Enterprise Ireland Technology Gateway Network is one route to those supports.
