Among the invited guest speakers are experts from UPMC International and Smart Agri Hubs Ireland, as well as Horizon 2020, VHI, Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), the National Development Research Centre (NDRC) and more.

Amplitude is the annual conference led by the Technology Transfer offices and Research Centres from Waterford Institute of Technology and Institute of Technology Carlow. Both support industry and help companies understand the impact of research on their business, industries and sectors. This year, Amplitude is supported by Purdy Lucey and Kilkenny County Council.

Amplitude 2019 offers a unique opportunity for companies, particularly multi-nationals and SME’s, to understand how relatively easy it is to collaborate with an IOT partner in the areas of research, innovation support and the sourcing suitable funding streams, according to Mark White,
Vice-President for Research & Innovation.

“This year, the conference will focus on four key streams; Design/Manufacturing/Engineering, Smart Energy, Future Health and Precision Agri. Each stream will outline the ecosystem, the current state of the art and the opportunities as we endeavour to offer delegates a real insight into the impact research will have on their business.”

Amplitude is a must for business people who want a more direct route to research and funding, according to IT Carlow’s Vice President for Development & Research, Declan Doyle.

“Companies will discover how to approach a research centre and foster a successful collaborative relationship from academic and industry experts with a goal of boosting their company’s research and development capabilities in this uncertain international business environment,” he concluded.
