Infineon Technologies AG has announced plans to significantly expand its Research and Development presence in Ireland during the next four years with over 100 new jobs in the Cork and Dublin sites. 

Micheál Martin (Tánaiste, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence) has said, “I’m very pleased to welcome Infineon Technologies’ significant expansion of its Research and Development presence in Ireland. This announcement underscores Ireland’s reputation as a global hub for innovation and technology and will have a positive impact on the communities of Dublin and Cork. The creation of over 100 highly skilled engineering positions across both locations reflects the confidence Infineon has in our talented workforce and supportive business environment.” 

The investment will also see the expansion of R&D facilities in both Cork and Dublin. The Infineon research teams in Ireland are focused on IP development for the automotive and consumer markets.
