Foundation for growth – Seed Fund Call

Construct Innovate is delighted to announce our second Seed Fund Call. The Seed Fund Call aims to promote collaborative, impactful projects initiated by industry members that can support organisations in the Irish construction sector with their organisational and sectoral challenges and create opportunities for innovation through research.

In the previous Seed Fund, 18 project applications were awarded funding. The research subjects include wide range of areas with increasing importance to member organisations and the wider industry in Ireland. Awarded projects cover subjects like certification, building regenerative towns and cities, mass timber construction, home user guides – urbanization and sustainability, 3D printing from waste composites, mobile construction robot pilots, 3D concrete printing, commercialisation of low carbon cements, innovative use of polymers in microtunnelling, decarbonisation of construction sites and deep and passive house retrofit.

This Seed Fund is open to Construct Innovate members only for projects up to €50,000. Project collaborators must include at least one Construct Innovate research performing organisation (RPO) member and one associate/patron member. Deadline for applications is 12 pm, 31 May 2024.
