Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) TTO

IADT Innovation facilitates, encourages and supports collaboration between industry and the IADT research community. Often with support from Enterprise Ireland schemes, we link companies with relevant staff and work together to overcome innovation challenges – developing value-adding products, processes and services. Where our researchers develop a technology or design with commercial potential, we support the process of protecting and commercialising the associated intellectual property through licence agreements with industry or spin-out ventures.



IADT specialises in teaching, research & creative innovation at the convergence of design, technology & enterprise. With deep expertise and experience in areas such as design, visual communication, multimedia and psychology. Our staff regularly help companies re-think how their technology, products and services can be designed to maximise adoption, usability and engagement. We have recently formed a new team dedicated to maximising the translation of our creative innovation and design talents into value for businesses in Ireland and beyond. We look forward to hearing from you and exploring how IADT can help your enterprise.
