National and EU grants for businesses

The Deloitte Gi3 team can assist your company to access a wide range of local, national and international funding initiatives.

Ireland has a number of state agencies that are responsible for supporting innovation, business expansion and training through grant aid funding. Deloitte’s knowledge and experience in this highly specialised area can help clients to identify and access funding from these agencies. We can help you to address an array of grant aid matters at every stage of grant aid funding: identification, ideation, application, validation and drawdown. The team is highly experienced in the practicalities of preparing, negotiating and reviewing funding applications and drawdowns. The team can help explore opportunities for local government grants for indigenous Irish companies through Enterprise Ireland, Údarás na Gaeltachta and Local Enterprise Offices and for foreign direct investment through IDA Ireland. In addition, Deloitte’s European Gi3 team operates a dedicated EU funding Centre of Excellence (COE) based in Brussels to support clients in a number of EU funding programmes: Horizon 2020, Life Programme and Eurostars. The Gi3 team in Ireland operates within this COE to ensure that Irish client companies can maximise their grant opportunities by availing of the funding provided by Irish state agencies and the EU.
