Later this month Southern Regional College will enhance its business support services with the launch of the i3 initiative – industry, innovation and incubation – representing an investment of £500k. The initiative is designed to foster innovation and growth in local companies through the dedicated support of a team of 15 research lecturers. The team will work exclusively with businesses offering knowledge transfer and support through R&D, one-to-one mentoring and specialist training. Brian Doran, SRC CEO, explained, “i3 will allow us to provide even more support to local businesses through our team of specialist staff. “The team will engage with clients in a very practical way to help businesses solve real problems, address challenges and capitalise on growth opportunities.” “Much of the support i3 offers is wholly or part-funded through a number of Government programmes; it is a very accessible and affordable knowledge platform for businesses to utilize,” Brian adds. I3 areas of specialism include: product design; product development; waste management; retrofit; analytical chemistry; apps development; cloud computing; and, creative media as well as tourism; food science; retail development and advanced engineering. The i3 initiative will be officially launched with a week-long series of business focused events (relating to each specialist area) hosted across SRC Campuses (Armagh, Lurgan, Newry and Portadown) commencing 28th January 2013. For more information about i3 launch week events and workshops contact the i3 team on 02830259664 or email
