Business, What's On
Newry Chamber of Commerce and Trade is hosting a special breakfast meeting to promote the European Union’s Funded programmes of support available under the INTERREG IVA Programme. This event will cover three diverse projects, PLATO EBR, Smart ECOHub and STEM, that are currently recruiting SMEs onto their programmes of activity. PLATO EBR provides owner managers a business support forum where they can network and discuss business ideas with established large ‘parent’ companies in the region. These ‘parent’ companies are leaders in their industry sectors, and support the programme by sharing their skills and experience within the network. The Smart ECO Hub is a dynamic cluster of companies innovating in the energy sector in Ireland’s North East. Its vision is to foster vibrant innovation in the energy sector so that it can become a key driver of sustainable economic development stimulating business growth and job creation. STEM seeks to encourage innovation and competitiveness which will lead to economic growth in small local businesses and industries and drive a strategic approach to sustainable development through the adoption of sustainable business practices. Dr. Cecilia Hegarty, Director of Plato EBR commented, “This event promises to provide a one-stop shop for companies seeking support to grow and create efficiencies. The meeting will leverage the strong connections which Newry Chamber has with businesses in diverse sectors within the East Border Region.” Colleen Dowdall, Acting Chief Executive of Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade stated, “We are delighted to be co-hosting this event. There is an array of business support programmes currently offered to businesses and this information breakfast will give the members the opportunity to gain more information on the current European Union’s Funded programmes available.” The information breakfast will take place on Tuesday 12th February from 7.30am – 9.00am in the Canal Court Hotel. The event is Free of Charge for members and £15 to non members. For further details please contact, email:; or book online at
