We are unveiling our list of event partners and sponsors for our returning IP conference series, Dublin IP and R&D Summit 2.0!

With just two months to go, Cosmonauts is excited to be returning internationally to host the Irish iteration of our Intellectual Property conference, Dublin IP and R&D Summit (DIPS) 2.0! The two-day conference focuses on the two interconnected streams of IP and R&D, through a number of intriguing panel discussions and presentations.

DIPS is packed with a noteworthy lineup of both well-established and high-growth IP firms and companies. We’d like to showcase a couple of our sponsors to highlight, and you can check out the full list of sponsors through the button below.

We work in partnership with Irish enterprises to help them start, grow, innovate and win export sales in global markets.

The application of research and innovation to business challenges is critical to the success of the Irish economy. We provide supports for both companies and researchers in Higher Education Institutes to develop new technologies and processes that will lead to job creation and increased exports. 

To complement Enterprise Ireland’s RD&I programmes, the ‘Intellectual Property (IP) Strategy Offer’ is a support to incentivise companies to develop an IP strategy, focused on capturing, managing and exploiting their R&D results to greater effect.

Enterprise Ireland is the headline sponsor for DIPS and Joe Doyle (IP Manager) along with Tom Kelly (Manager of the Innovation and Competitiveness Division) will be joining as a speakers for the conference day!
