A plan to create 26 jobs in the Monksland area of Athlone will be launched this week with the publication of a report on the establishment of a Smart Technology Enterprise Hub.
The initiative, spearheaded by Athlone Chamber, outlines a plan for a new enterprise incubation hub in the industrial heartland of Monksland, Co Roscommon, that would focus on high tech/digital micro enterprises in the IT, creative industries, and smart technology sector.
The study predicts that the project could attract 26 new jobs to the Monksland community within the first year of establishment which would be a powerful intervention.
Athlone Chamber secured feasibility study funding with the assistance of Roscommon LEADER Partnership and it was commissioned by Momentum Consulting.
Tommy Ryan, CEO of Roscommon County Council, will launch the report tonight, Thursday May 7 at 5.30pm in the Athlone Springs Hotel, and anyone with an interest in becoming involved in the development phase of the project or using the new facility is encouraged to attend.
