On the 30th June 2020 our AEC team alongside the AEC officer network held an online event focused on supporting hubs and co-working spaces to re-open along the Atlantic Economic Corridor. Over 90 participants joined the call from Kerry to Donegal and heard from our AEC team and a number of guest speaker including Liam Cronin, CEO of RDI Hub, Niamh Costello, Manager at Galway Technology centre and others.
Our team gave an update on our AEC Hubs Strategy, our planned booking system and our recent work on the classification of the hubs. Last week our team alongside DRCD, announced an investment of €300,000 for enterprise hubs along the Atlantic Economic Corridor to help them implement measures to reopen in compliance with public health guidelines as the economy recovers from the impact of COVID-19. You can read more on that announcment HERE. Today’s event give hub owners and managers a more in depth look at the application form and how to apply for this funding.
If you missed out on the event or wish to know more, you can watch it back in full below. Any hub owner or manager looking to apply for the support should contact their AEC county officer. A full list is available HERE.
