Mazars continues AI Awards sponsorship

Mazars is delighted to announce its continued sponsorship of the AI Awards, a partnership that has thrived since its inception in 2018.

The AI Awards play a pivotal role in raising public awareness and garnering support for Artificial Intelligence. By fostering collaboration between academia and industry, the awards celebrate the remarkable achievements within the AI domain on the island of Ireland.

Hosted by AI Ireland, a non-profit community dedicated to advancing AI in Ireland, these awards serve as a catalyst for promoting Ireland's global reputation as the preferred destination for AI investments, job opportunities, research endeavors, and product innovations.

Lorcan Colclough, a partner at Mazars, underlines the significance of the technology sector for the Irish economy. “Despite recent reports of job reductions, Ireland's technology sector comprising multinational and indigenous businesses continues to flourish, maintaining its reputation as a technology leader in Europe. Drawing from Mazars' extensive experience in the sector, coupled with the rapid evolution of Artificial Intelligence and the heightened complexities of cyber security, we are witnessing significant demand for our data protection and cyber security expertise.”

Mark Kelly, CEO AI Ireland, comments on the Mazars sponsorship announcement, “AI Awards are very grateful to Mazars, who generously supported them as the first sponsor back in 2018 when AI Awards was merely a concept. Now, as they enter their fifth year of sponsorship, AI Awards couldn't be more thrilled to have Mazars continue their sponsorship.”

To mark our fifth consecutive year sponsoring the AI Awards Ireland, John Burke from our R&D tax team talks with Mark Kelly, CEO, AI Ireland, about the world of R&D tax credits and the key conditions companies need to qualify for support.
