The Catalyst project has now officially closed.

Thank you to all the businesses that have worked with Catalyst both in Ireland and Wales.

We wish you all the very best for the future.

About the Catalyst Project

Catalyst was a cross-border Ireland Wales pilot project that used the theme of sustainability to drive and inspire innovation within Welsh and Irish businesses from the food and drink and life science sectors, two of the three priority areas of the Ireland Wales programme.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David was the lead partner and was joined by Carlow County Council, WRAP Cymru, Tipperary County Council and the Institute of Technology Carlow.

The Catalyst project was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Ireland-Wales Programme. The Ireland-Wales programme plays a vital role in helping to foster partnerships and business links through cross-border projects between the coastal counties of East and South-East Ireland and West Wales.
