Advanced Communications Technology Project

The ACT project helped businesses in Ireland and Wales to better understand the opportunities that social media, the internet and other modern communication technologies could offer.

We delivered a range of fully funded workshops (such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc.) and a 1-to-1 targeted support programme to help businesses with individual challenges (such as bespoke social media strategies, website improvements etc.).

Our website still houses a free knowledge base offering a range of articles and videos to help businesses at any time of the day or night.

Our fully funded workshops and 1-to-1 sessions were only available to businesses in the Welsh regions of Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire and the Irish counties of South Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow, Wexford and Waterford.

General Information

The ACT project was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Ireland-Wales Programme (INTERREG 4A). The project operated between 2012 and 2015.

The Ireland-Wales programme helps develop cross-border projects between the coastal counties of East and South-East Ireland and West Wales.

Tipperary County Council in Ireland was the lead partner of the project, which included a partnership with Local Enterprise Office Carlow. The activity in Wales was conducted by the University of Wales Trinity Saint David at campuses in Swansea and Carmarthen.
