NovaUCD 2019 Expansion

Our New Facility Opens in 2019

In June 2018 work commenced on NovaUCD’s €6.5millon project to renovate and extend the facility’s East courtyard.  Due for completion in Autumn 2019 the development will expand NovaUCD’s capacity by over 50% with an additional 23 business units, including office, lab and co-working space.

Companies locating in NovaUCD will continue to leverage this ecosystem of experienced mentors, founders, alumni, investors and sponsors to help grow their businesses.

The proposed new development will help protect NovaUCD’s position as the leading Incubation centre in Ireland.
