ENTERPRISE Ireland (EI) held its most recent board meeting at the South East Technological University (SETU).

SETU President, Professor Veronica Campbell and colleagues from the SETU executive,  welcomed Enterprise Ireland Chairman Terence O’Rourke and Chief Executive Leo Clancy along with EI board members.

Prof Veronica Campbell stated: “We were delighted to host Enterprise Ireland’s board meeting. Enterprise Ireland and SETU have a long history of working together on a regional, national, and international level. Investment in research capability and infrastructure in SETU and the South East region is critical to enhancing the innovative and productive capacity of companies in the region.”

She continued: “Funding which the university has secured through many of Enterprise Ireland’s support programmes has played a key role in enabling our Technology Gateways and wider research community to very effectively collaborate with companies on a range of R & D activities.”
The event also provided SETU with an opportunity to showcase the scale and impact of its programmes and activities as well as meeting with EI client companies and regional stakeholders.

Said SETU Vice President for External Affairs Kathryn Kiely: “The development of the innovative and entrepreneurial talent within the South East is a key theme of the South East Regional Enterprise Plan. SETU through collaboration with Enterprise Ireland, other regional public sector organisations and private enterprise serves to drive the realisation of this ambition for the region.”
