Chinese phone provider Huawei has partnered with Trinity College Dublin as it aims to grow its research and development (R&D) output in Ireland.
Additionally, the company has expanded its Cork R&D operation, which is growing to nearly 20 highly-skilled staff.
The collaboration with Trinity will focus on focus on video intelligence and how artificial intelligence will impact society.
Guo Ping, Huawei rotating chief executive, said the Trinity partnership forms a part of the company’s growing commitment to investing in Ireland. “We are continuing to tap into Ireland’s growing clusters of video, artificial intelligence, cloud, telecoms and technology businesses, nurturing future talent and providing additional new opportunities for highly-skilled professionals.”
An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said the company’s expanding Irish operations are a “strong endorsement of Ireland’s tech credentials”.
“Bilateral trade between Ireland and China is now worth over €12 billion each year, and by strengthening our links with companies like Huawei we can increase this further in the years ahead,” he added.
IDA chief executive Martin Shanahan also welcomed the announcement and said: “Creating a world-class ecosystem for scientific research is a key part of Irish Government policy and over recent years Ireland put in place a range of measures to improve the environment in this area. Today’s announcement by Huawei, a global leader in this sector, is extremely positive and I look forward to working with Huawei as its investment in Ireland grows.”
