Do you have an idea for a disruptive digital technology that can realise transformational societal and economic impact for Ireland? 

The Future Digital Challenge will support researchers in creating disruptive digital technologies that will lead to new digital products, processes or services that will unlock transformational societal and economic impact for Ireland. Participation in the challenge will involve teams progressing through phases, each supporting further development of the challenge concept and solution, to compete for an overall Prize Award of €1M.

It is an agile, fast-paced programme that allows research teams to work with societal stakeholders to deliver tangible impact through their research. In addition to funding, teams are provided with training and mentoring to support the acceleration of an idea and to demonstrate how it can solve real-world problems. Participation has the potential to foster significant career development and collaborative opportunities.
