Event description

Description

This workshop will be hosted by the UCD Institute for Discovery (@UCDDiscovery) and will enable basic researchers based in UCD Dublin to learn more about Atlantic Bridge's new Proof of Principle (POP) fund.

At this workshop, entrepreneur and investor Chris Horn (Partner, Atlantic Bridge) will share his experiences on the road to commercialisation and offer his insight into this POP fund.

In a nutshell, a POP is a type of ‘seed fund’ of up to €100k with a duration of 9-12 months. Atlantic Bridge expects to fund 30 POPs in Ireland over the next 4-5 years. The application process is informal, i.e. researchers are invited to give a short presentation, and usually takes 4-6 weeks between the initial contact and award decision. To apply researchers must be able to answer the following questions:

1. What is the research?

2. Why is it commercially interesting?

3. Who is going to lead the team?
