500 New Jobs At 'Innovation Campus'

A new 'innovation campus' being established at Dublin City University will create 500 new jobs over the next five years, in a plan to be announced by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton later today.

The planned development, to be located on a currently vacant site in north Dublin, which was formerly occupied by Enterprise Ireland, will create 200 jobs in the first 18 months, with a further 300 expected by 2018.

It is hoped that high tech companies will choose to locate at the site due to the access to skills and facilities.
