University of Limerick has recently launched its software center, which is expected to provide 90 PhD and 46 post-doctoral positions for research and development. The institution will train software engineers to fill the skills gap in the field of software industry for the next generations. The said investment was funded by the Science Foundation Ireland in Lero, State, and EU structural funds, and is said to be worth €46m. This new investment is only one of the parts of Lero’s move in expanding its specialty in research and software engineering. The world-class research center is also seen to host software researchers from several Irish universities.
