€217m funding boost for region announced in city

Thu, Jan 26, 2023

A massive €217m in European Regional Development Funds (ERDF) is to be invested in the region to build the capacity of the new Atlantic Technological University to support regional research and innovation, as well as address dereliction and connectivity, it was announced last evening (Wednesday) in Galway.

The major funding will be used for the delivery of a regional smart hub network for research, training, innovation, commercialization; and will underpin the region’s existing enterprise ecosystem with training and innovation supports.

It will also result in engagement with SEAI to ensure households get deep energy retrofits; and will address the high rate of derelict and vacant properties in the region.
