EU Funding covers many sectors of industry and society. We work within some of them....

Knowing your sectoral area, the EU policy both in terms of problems to be solved, the EU approach to these in terms of strategy and the funding packages which are committed to supporting these, is of immense importance before considering any funding opportunity. 


The medical technology sector in Ireland is recognised as one of the five global emerging hubs. The sector employs over 40,000 people in Ireland and is the second largest employer of MedTech professionals in Europe, per capita. There are a wealth of National and European funding opportunities available to MedTech companies in Ireland – such as DTIF (Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund), EIT Health Programmes, and the EIC Accelerator Programme.


The AgriTech industry is all about using technology to improve agricultural practice – making life better for farmers, animals, and customers. As part of the EU’s Green Deal and Digitalisation strategies, the EU rolls out a number of funding initiatives for AgriTech businesses with innovative ideas to reduce the EU’s carbon footprint and improve agricultural practice globally.

The bioeconomy is all about the production of renewable biological resources and turning these resources and waste streams into value-added products, such as food and bio-energy. The European Bioeconomy Strategy aims to strengthen and scale up the bio-based sectors, unlock investments and markets. This will be achieved in part through EU funding streams such as BBI JU (Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking) and upcoming Horizon Europe open calls.

Blue Economy

The Blue Economy covers all economic activities related to oceans, seas and coasts. Emerging sectors within the Blue Economy include marine renewable energy, such as the offshore wind sector and the ocean energy sector, and the blue biotechnology sector. The EU supports the blue economy through various funding instruments, such as the European Fund for Strategic Investments, the BlueInvest Platform and the new BlueInvest Fund.

Social Innovation

Social innovation is about creating new social practices to meet needs in a better way than the existing solutions. These innovations can focus on any social problem – such as working conditions, education, community development or health. The EU supports innovations which put the principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights into practice, through funding programmes such as the upcoming European Social Fund Plus
