Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Special Arrangements

For Entrepreneurs

We have spent a lot of time over the last few weeks preparing our NovaUCD and Nexus buildings to reopen. Implementing clear signage, distance markings, sanitisation points, one-way systems, deep cleans, perspex screens, washing, cleaning and training. We are taking every precaution to ensure our community have a safe return to campus in line with Government’s back to work safety protocol.

While Covid-19 has been challenging for everyone in different ways, we are excited about more positive days ahead. Some of the most iconic companies of the next decade will be launched during these uncertain times. At NovaUCD, we are seeking applications from entrepreneurs with groundbreaking technologies with high impact who want to join our community.
