Please note that Phase 1 is a competitive application process, therefore the submission of an application in itself does not guarantee any candidate a place on the programme. In order to gain the most benefit from Phase 1 of the programme, applicants should be committed to allocating time to researching their idea during this phase. Attending our specifically designed Phase 1 may assist you to improve your chances of accessing our next Phase 2 of New Frontiers at DkIT/DCU Invent.
