Edtech, Ireland and Learnovate
EdTech – or ‘Education Technology’ – encapsulates the industry involved in the development of next practice learning technology solutions. From pre-school through higher education and into corporate and lifelong learning.
Globally, the sector is poised for significant growth, the overall market is estimated to be worth more than $250 billion by 2017. Ireland is recognised as a world a leader in EdTech. For more than 15 years, we have been leading learning innovations through research, collaboration and industry services and the level and depth of expertise available here is considered unique.
The Learnovate Centre is at the heart of this growth story. Since April 2013, Learnovate activities have supported the creation of over 100 jobs – and with the EdTech sector showing significant growth potential, this number is expected to more than double by 2017.
