European Digital Innovation Hub

CeADAR is Ireland’s National Centre for Applied AI and has been supporting Irish companies over the past 10 years in applying AI and data analytics to improve processes and create new products and services.

CeADAR has now been selected by the European Commission to become the European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) for AI in Ireland with a mission to expand our reach and support to companies from all over Ireland. Our focus is on SMEs and Public Service Organisations who wish to know how AI and data analytics can help them and to understand the advantages that they bring.

Engaging with CeADAR as your local EDIH will allow your organisation or company to access funded specialist training and upskilling, try out technology demonstrators, understand how your business can benefit from analytics and AI and project feasibility work designed to minimise the barriers to technology adoption.

CeADAR are offering AI Maturity Assessments which signpost relevant supports that we can provide your organisation or company as it begins its digital transition.
