GMIT’s integrated approach to Research, Development and Innovation is delivered through its Research Centres and Innovation Hubs.

We apply our knowledge in Intellectual Property and business incubation, to link companies with Institutional expertise, and work with national and international partners. Our research centres include the:

Business Research Innovation Network Group (BRING)

- Heritage Research Group

- Marine and Freshwater Research Centre (MFRC)

- Medical and Engineering Technologies Gateway (MET) - (External website)

- Integrated Sustainable Energy Research Group (iSET)

All centres complement our established expertise in Science, Engineering, and Heritage.  Emerging areas such as Information and Communication Technologies, Tourism, Arts and Design are opening new avenues for research.
