The ISIN manager was able to understand our business, technologies and innovation aspirations and was able to identify for us the relevant University research groups who could help us out.

DANU is a technology company providing innovative solutions to improve the business performance of enterprise organisations. Areas of specialisations include Telecom Service Assurance, Customer Sentiment Analysis, Business Intelligence and Enterprise Mobile Applications. Philip Sharpe, Director of DANU shares the reasons why companies should engage with ISIN.

"In my time as CEO of CAPE Technologies I was conscious that we were missing opportunities by not collaborating with the third level research institutes. However I felt that it would be a big effort to investigate where the relevant knowledge would be to suit us and I kept putting it on the long-finger.

During my time with DANU however, I was fortunate to get involved with ISIN and found that there was fantastic knowledge and support available to make the investigation easy. The ISIN manager was able to understand our business, technologies and innovation aspirations and was able to identify for us the relevant University research groups who could help us out. ISIN then made the introductions and provided background project management and assistance to make our chosen collaborations work. This included advice on funding supports available and assistance on applying for and securing this support.

ISIN clearly has excellent relationships with the different Universities and also with the Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation team which is most helpful. DANU has already benefited in terms of solid outcomes but we also have several more opportunities visible due to the relationships we have now developed with a number of third level institutes."
