The Explore Programme at NUI Galway is all about bringing great ideas to life.

Our next deadline for applications will be announced in due course. Check out our 'FAQ and Apply' section to access previous application forms, for your information.

The Explore Programme is where NUI Galway students and staff find support for innovative ideas. Over 100 projects have been supported by EXPLORE.

Staff and students across campus are invited to apply for collaborative projects. There is up to €900 in funding, along with a support structure brought to you by the Innovation Office, to enable innovative ideas to get off the ground.

The Explore Programme is powered by the Innovation Office through NUI Galway LaunchPad.

So if you have an idea ...get in touch! Call into the LaunchPad on campus, email or follow us on twitter at ‎@EXPLOREnuig

EXPLORE is supported by the Galway University Foundation and managed by the Innovation Office.  Through the years Explore has had great support from the NUI Galway Students’ Union, the University’s Student Projects Fund, the then Office of the Vice-President for Innovation and Performance, and sponsors such as Chanelle, Galway County Council and Galway City Council.
