Today’s fast-paced and ever-evolving business landscape requires constant innovation. 

Ours is a thriving region, renowned for its culture, creativity, technology and innovation.  Our research-driven university is at the heart of this distinctive region and the Innovation Office underpins its impact and innovation ecosystem. 

Founded in 2006, University of Galway’s Innovation Office is a hub for entrepreneurs, startups and established companies alike to propel their ventures to new heights in a supported environment.

Our team in the Innovation Office take innovative ideas and turn them into real life opportunities and impact, supporting the region’s start-ups through engagement, collaboration, knowledge transfer, research funding and commercialisation.  

This is what makes us stand out from the rest. We are there at the inception of an idea and carry it through what can be a very long research and commercial journey. We provide dedicated resources and expertise at every step of the way, developing impact pathways from research outputs with infrastructure to scale and grow this fledgling idea into something great. 

We are the interface to ensure our spinouts get the support needed to become highly investable. 13/13 of our spinouts are funded and over the last three years, 75% have already achieved HPSU status.
