United Technologies Research Centre (UTRC) is expanding its Cork facility, setting up an additional aerospace research hub and hiring 25 people.

Currently employing 40 people on site, the research facility sees researchers and scientists focused on advancing capabilities in building and industrial systems through research and development of underlying technical fields.
