Minister for Small Business, John Perry announced the launch of the SourceDogg.com PhD Scholarship for Excellence in Procurement Research in the Centre for Executive Education in Dublin City University. The successful candidates will receive fees funded by DCU and a €20,000 stipend for associated expenses from SourceDogg.com. The scholarship relates to the research area of procurement.
Minister for Small Business, John Perry said “The PhD Scholarship in Procurement Research which is funded by DCU and SourceDogg.com is an excellent example of a small Irish company partnering with a leading academic institution to allow a graduate the opportunity to complete world class research on the socially important area of Procurement.
SourceDogg.com is an example of the type of ambitious indigenous entrepreneurship required to drive job creation. It is very encouraging for me, as the Minister for Small Business, to see an Irish SME competing with large international players in their sector and winning market share.
It is partnerships like these that are key to ensuring that the ‘Innovation Revolution’ which we are aiming for in Government, becomes a reality in the enterprise economy.”
