Welcome to the
Innovation Office at NUI Galway

The Innovation Office at NUI Galway is the technology-transfer and entrepreneurial hub for the University.

We drive impact by supporting collaborations and exchange between our research community and industry.  We also support the vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem among our students and staff, and in the region.

Our focus is on the benefits to society and the economy which will come from the innovations that are seeded, researched, developed and implemented right now.
