WATER­FORD

In Water­ford, the EU has funded re­gen­er­a­tion of Water­ford city cen­tre, a Na­tional Stu­dent En­ter­prise Awards prize for De La Salle Col­lege Water­ford stu­dents’ Kid­sCode, as well as the South East Busi­ness In­no­va­tion Cen­tre’s smart farm­ing ini­tia­tive.

Water­ford City re­gen­er­a­tion

Water­ford City has been awarded €4m to re­gen­er­ate its city cen­tre.

The project aims to im­prove ac­cess and stim­u­late a new re­tail cen­tre.

It will also pri­ori­tise sus­tain­able modes of trans­port, in­clud­ing ded­i­cated cy­cling lanes.

An all-weather space in the Ap­ple Mar­ket will be de­vel­oped for night time use. A pedes­tri­anised re­tail area will be con­nected to the Vik­ing Tri­an­gle.

WEST­MEATH

EU has funded Mullingar Employment Ac­tion Group’s Cru­cial project, along with Ge­o­graph­i­cal In­fra­struc­ture So­lu­tions’ in­volve­ment in cloud com­put­ing, and new en­hance­ment works in Mullingar.

Cru­cial project

Mullingar Employment Ac­tion Group was awarded over €277,000 for the Cru­cial Crowd Fund­ing project, which is de­signed to in­form all stake­hold­ers who can ben­e­fit from this in­no­va­tive means of fund­ing busi­ness ven­tures. The project is gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion on mar­ket con­di­tions re­gard­ing the growth of crowd fund­ing in cer­tain coun­tries and amal­ga­mat­ing this into a pan-Euro­pean vi­sion.
