Future-proofing Irish economy with Emerging Technologies
The state is planning an expansion of regional research facilities as part of its new initiative to future-proof Ireland’s economy.
Future Jobs Ireland, which is being unveiled today, will also involve a number of measures designed to increase participation in the workforce, including a national consultation on the extension of flexible working options and the development of a strategy for remote working.
Heather Humphreys, the enterprise minister, is launching the plan at Dogpatch Labs in the CHQ Building in Dublin’s docklands today, alongside the taoiseach Leo Varadkar and the finance minister Paschal Donohoe.
The new multi-year strategy is designed to ensure Irish businesses are prepared for emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles and advanced manufacturing.
