It was announced this week that 3M will establish a new research and development technical centre in Dublin – called the 3M Digital Science Community – with the anticipated creation of more than 100 new jobs over the next two to three years.
The science-based global technology company has had a presence in Ireland since 1975 and currently employs upwards of 500 people, both in Dublin and at its manufacturing facility in Athlone. Recruitment for the new 3M Digital Science Community is underway with new team members working remotely until the fit out of 2 Cumberland Place in Dublin’s city centre is complete later this year.
The centre works closely with 3M Health Care’s Health Information Systems Division (HIS) and with the broader 3M Health Care Business Group. 3M HIS is one of the world’s largest providers of integrated software and consulting services designed to improve the performance and delivery of quality healthcare.
Welcoming the announcement, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar said, "This announcement from 3M provides a really welcome boost for Dublin’s city centre. With many businesses reopening over recent weeks, things are improving, and we will see our city centre bustling again. The establishment of this new research and development centre will create 100 highly skilled jobs over the next two to three years and is further proof that Ireland is recognised as a global hub for leading technology innovators. I wish the company all the best in this exciting new chapter."
