Innovation Impact

Our university is at the heart of a distinctive city and region, renowned for its culture, creativity, technology and innovation.

Our city is home to exciting start-ups, scaling organisations, SMEs and large international corporates. Galway is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for medtech, data science, culture and creativity, climate and oceans, public policy, and innovation. We believe the knowledge and innovations generated by research at NUI Galway should positively impact on society and the economy. The Innovation Office plays a critical role in supporting this impact through its work with researchers, students, industry partners, entrepreuners and governement agencies.
