Partnerships & Collaborations
Whether it is with industry, academia or the public sector, ICHEC’s preferred engagement model is through collaborations and partnerships. As a leading authority in HPC in Ireland, a number of high-profile engagements have developed over the years, most of these still active projects. The existence of these multi-year relationships is a clear indication of their strategic value to our collaborators and partners. Follow on one of the following shortcuts for further information:
- Industry partnerships
- EC Horizon 2020 partnerships
- Exchequer-supported collaborations and partnerships
- Public Sector and Semi-State bodies
In addition to EC Horizon 2020 partnerships ICHEC is actively engaged in a number of international initiatives, ranging from infrastructure building, policy advice on technology and climate change. ICHEC's active role in HPC ensures that Ireland truly avails of relevant opportunities and plays a part in shaping up the future.
ICHEC’s key domains of expertise are Novel Technologies, Environmental Sciences and Oil & Gas, each supported through a dedicated ICHEC activity, and each providing considerable bodies of knowledge and expertise that can be leveraged to initiate and support collaborative R&D. In ICHEC, we strongly believe in the impact of combining technological excellence and domain expertise. The description of these activities will demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.
