 Successful Industry Open Day

A very successful Industry Open Day was held by MiCRA in the Synergy Centre on the 30th November. MiCRA and IT-T staff gave overviews and demos of the facilities and expertise available at MiCRA and the wider institute and Majella Maher from Enterprise Ireland gave an excellent overview of funding mechanisms available to companies. A special thanks to Frank Guilfoyle (Rainwater TSS), Brendan Chambers (Chamco), Jim Roche (Incereb) and Mary Ferry (DPTC) for their informative and entertaining talks.
