NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – A $665 million development project envisioned as a place where innovations are hatched, developed and brought to market to benefit people across the planet will have an Irish accent.
Atlantic Technological University (ATU), one of Ireland’s largest multi-campus universities with an enrollment of more than 20,000 students, will be a tenant at the New Jersey Innovation & Technology Hub that is under construction downtown.
Companies attached to ATU will be offered six months of free office, lab and co-working space at The Hub as a result of an agreement between New Brunswick Development Corporation (DEVCO), Choose New Jersey and the school, Gov. Phil Murphy’s office announced today.
The collaboration will promote foreign direct investment, enhance the global competitiveness of New Jersey and Irish companies and support collaborative research and development in areas of common interest, according to a press release from the governor’s office.
