Talent Hotspot

The East is home to five universities and four Institutes of Technology, which produce approximately 26,800 graduates every year. These third-level institutions actively work to build industry links and offer extensive research capabilities to companies through a number of Technology and Applied Research Centres, such as the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training.


Dublin is home to over one million people and is a lively, contemporary capital city brimming with style and personality. But when people need a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, the tranquillity of the countryside is less than an hour’s drive away. Dublin also offers numerous beaches, golf courses and an abundance of sporting and healthy lifestyle activities all within easy reach of the centre. 


Research & Development

As Ireland’s Research and Development hub the East region is home to the country’s flagship Nanoscience Institute located at Trinity College. The East also boasts the Conway Institute, which specialises in Bimolecular and Biomedical research, and the Clarity Research centre specialising in Sensor Web.



As Ireland’s most populated region, the East benefits from exceptional infrastructure. It is serviced by an impressive road network, several ports, Dublin International Airport and an integrated City Centre public transport system. The East region also benefits from extensive and robust telecommunications infrastructure and connectivity.
