UCD innovators bring in 300 jobs
SOME 300 highly skilled jobs are to be created through 37 companies at NovaUCD within the next 24 months.
The Innovation and Technology Transfer Centre at University College Dublin expects to more than double the number of people currently employed in companies based at the centre.
Professor Peter Clinch, vice-president for innovation at UCD, said 205 people are already employed by the 37 companies. These companies have raised over €40m in equity investment to date and created 80 jobs during 2011.
"I am delighted that the facilities and supports being made available to the start-ups located at UCD are helping these companies thrive and create quality jobs," Mr Clinch said.
