The NCFB, together with its partners Beauchamps, AIB and PwC, engages with international family business associations and projects, to support family businesses in Ireland with informed and innovative evidence based research. Beauchamps' Family Business group advises a range of family business in Ireland, both large and small, across a range of sectors.

The goal is to provide the family business community with practical business insights, informed by lessons from best practice in family business management. The NCFB produces and shares insights that support sustainable family business practices for the next generation. These insights and our internationally peer-reviewed research findings, together with the Centre’s programme of annual conferences, workshops and seminars, help to  educate the current generation family members about the benefits and challenges of managing, leading and owning a family business.
