Spin-out Company Impact Award

Spin-out Logo

The Spin-out Company Award recognises a spin-out company from an Irish publicly-funded research performing organisation (RPO) that has accomplished a successful or significant achievement during the specified time period between 1st January 2018 – 30th June 2019.  The award celebrates the company success and its heritage in the RPO, including the support provided by the TTO/ILO.

For clarity, a spin-out company is one that is based on RPO research and at the time of formation was dependent on the exploitation of specific intellectual property rights (IPR) of the RPO.  The RPO may have / have had equity in the spin-out company and will have licensed IPR to the company.
