Origin8 Centre

Origin8 is a centre for commercialisation and innovation, where campus spin-outs work to establish their business and design researchers collaborate with companies across a range of industries.

At Origin8, our experienced staff help guide clients and design residents through the various options available for their research requirements.  Our highly skilled designers have extensive experience of successfully delivering projects for a range of clients. 

With Origin8, NCAD is aligning our organisational culture with the Government’s aim of making it easier for businesses to access expertise in higher education, as in Knowledge Transfer Ireland.  Our primary objective is to focus on innovation and creativity, and to develop the key intellectual capital necessary to transform ideas into new technology, products and services.

If your company is interested in exploring design solutions or is looking to research a new aspect of your work, or if you’re a design start-up looking to develop your business, then Origin8 is the place for you.
