Issued: Now in their fifth year, The US-Ireland Research Innovation Awards celebrate cutting-edge research and innovations of outstanding calibre in a range of sectors. 
 
The 2019 Awards is now calling for entries deadline Wednesday 19 December. Jointly presented by the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland and the Royal Irish Academy, they recognise excellence in research innovation, creation and invention by an organisation, as a result of US foreign direct investment (FDI) in Ireland.
 
There are three categories to enter: Irish operations of a US multinational company (MNC); higher education institution research centres or institutes (HEI); and Irish micro or small and medium enterprises (SME) with a link to the US corporate sector.
 
The US Ireland Research Innovation Awards are a fantastic way to acknowledge the valuable contribution of your innovative team, while placing your research and innovation on a national stage.
 
Shortlisted candidates for these prestigious awards will be announced in early March, and winners will be announced at the American Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner on May 17, 2019
