Next Event hosted by DCU Alpha - - Dublin's b of Invention

27th June 2017

Co-located with Dublin City University, DCU ALPHA is a commercial innovation campus that promotes the growth of research-intensive businesses that are creating the technologies and services of tomorrow. Occupying a city-central 9 acre site, the campus has played a pivotal role in innovation and scientific research in Ireland, over its 70 year history.

Repurposed by DCU and reopened in early 2014, DCU ALPHA has quickly attracted a community of like-minded innovative companies. 35 companies employing 350 staff currently operate across the 200,000 sq. ft campus of mixed office, industrial and research space, developing ground-breaking products in connected health, clean energy and IoT technology. Here, indigenous SMEs and start-ups innovate alongside multinationals like Fujitsu, Siemens and Veolia in a collaborative hub, in partnership with a visionary university.

A city at the forefront of the digital revolution, Dublin is ideally positioned to become a global IoT capital. DCU ALPHA provides optimum conditions for firms involved in bridging the physical and digital worlds.
