It’s an economic truth, universally acknowledged, that innovation is at the core of most successful businesses.
Being innovative, however, is easier said than done. That’s why incubation centres are so necessary. Ireland proudly boasts nine university incubation centres, six university bio incubation centres and 15 Institute of Technology incubation centres.
And they all contribute to making Dublin one of the world’s most exciting locations for both research and development – and in which to do business.
At the heart of all this, you’ll find NovaUCD. Located on the campus of University College Dublin, this state-of-the-art facility opened its doors in 2003 and is based in the lovingly restored 18th-century Merville House.
It’s home to exciting high tech ventures, visionary entrepreneurs and most importantly - big, innovative ideas.
It offers an extensive business support programme for the client companies based there. With advice, seminars and workshops, as well as access to NovaUCD’s extensive network of investors, researchers and business leaders, it has become a true hub of innovation in Dublin.
