Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credits

Innovation Monitor

KPMG has conducted annual research of Irish business attitudes to innovation and research and development (R&D) for the past four years. We see this research and associated commentary as essential in encouraging an informed debate about how we further develop Ireland’s strengths in this area. The survey, conducted on our behalf by Red:C Research, gauges opinion amongst a representative sample of over 100 Irish business leaders.
