AcademyWest to create 500 new jobs at Galway Technology Centre

Thu, Oct 10, 2019

Over 500 jobs will be created by innovation driven enterprises at the new AcademyWest at Galway Technology Centre (GTC), resulting in an annual €62 million boost to the west of Ireland over the next five years – and the facility is poised to act as a driver of regional growth in the technology sector.

In major expansion plans, GTC says AcademyWest will incorporate a 2,122 square metre extension and a range of supports to address a critical capacity barrier and facilitate rapid scaling of tech companies across the region.

Twenty-five years after being founded in response to the closure of Digital Hardware with the loss of 760 jobs, GTC will expand on its regional leadership role with this ‘flight centre for scaling innovation-driven global technology companies’.
