US Ireland Research Innovation Awards
The creative minds behind some of Ireland's greatest innovations were gathered in Dublin last night for the inaugural US-Ireland Research Innovation Awards. The Awards, jointly presented by the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland and Royal Irish Academy, recognise excellence in research innovation that has taken place on the island of Ireland as a result of US foreign direct investment.
Ireland's Innovation Pathway
Ireland must double its spending on research, development & innovation (RDI) to 3% of GDP within the next decade according to a new report released today by the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland. Ireland's Innovation Pathway: Attracting Investment; Driving Economic Growth articulates a vision for Ireland's RDI environment that will retain and attract US foreign direct investment.
World of Talent in Ireland
A major new campaign ‘World of Talent in Ireland’ was today launched by the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland and IDA Ireland. The campaign will initially target Ireland’s global graduate community, highlighting abroad the career opportunities that now exist in Ireland, with a view to attracting talent here.
Government's Spring Statement
The American Chamber of Commerce Ireland has welcomed the commitment within the Spring Statement to maintain Ireland's 12.5% corporate tax rate. The rate, which was described as a ‘red line issue' by Minister Noonan, has been a cornerstone of Ireland's enterprise policy and is partly responsible for attracting over 700 US companies to create 130,000 jobs here.
