IES has established a new European company, IES Ireland, based in Dublin. This dedicated R&D company provides flexibility to our existing and potential new Research Partners when it comes to working with us.
Funding has been acquired from both National: Scottish Enterprise, the UK Technology Strategy Board (Now Innovate UK), and European Programmes: 7th Framework (FP7), Horizon 2020 (H2020) and Competitiveness and Innovation (CIP).
As an experienced manager of collaborative funded research projects, IES has worked closely with industry partners, academic institutions and research organisations. Industrial partners have the opportunity to engage with IES and develop their own business, while academic collaboration and sponsorship of Postgraduate and Postdoctoral research integrates state of the art research and third party validation of new technology and developments.
We have been successful in producing a number of commercially viable products as a result of IES R&D projects. Notable examples include the IMPACT Compliant Suite, the HONE and Parametric Optimisation suite, ERGON, and the Glasgow Energy App (Glasgow Future Cities).
