As he continues his four-day trip through Ireland, Gov. Phil Murphy announced the signing of three Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) between New Jersey academic and real estate entities with top Irish tech universities and a startup accelerator.
The goal of the MOU’s is to create mutually beneficial opportunities and forge collaboration in innovative projects that foster entrepreneurship, business development, career development and international education.
“A consistent effort of my administration has been helping New Jerseys institutions in identifying and partnership with entities that can help grow New Jersey’s economy and create good-paying jobs,” said Murphy. “The partnerships solidified today are an example of thefruits of those efforts. The MOU’s signed today will further propel New Jersey’s path toward economic progress as we welcome new partnerships, opportunities, and perspectives to our state. Today’s announcement will facilitate international collaborations that will spur economic growth and build a vibrant technology ecosystem rooted in New Jersey’s legacy of innovation.”
