In a big win for Irish tech, the prestigious MIT Innovators Under 35 Europe — showcasing Europe’s most brilliant young minds — is heading for Co Donegal in May 2022.
Since 1999, the MIT Innovators Under 35 list has been celebrating the most brilliant young minds on the planet engaged in breakthrough technologies.
gteic@Gaoth Dobhair is located on the Údarás na Gaeltachta business park, Páirc Ghnó Ghaoth Dobhair, in the Donegal Gaeltacht. It is a state of the art innovation & digital hub, which will be available to you after the crisis, more information here - https://t.co/N4jS1W3pzw pic.twitter.com/s5fFlY768h— Údarás na Gaeltachta (@UdarasnaG) March 22, 2021
Previous tech trailblazers recognised on the list include Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page. The event was last held in 2019 in France — before Covid disrupted the annual presentation.
Very honored to have been named one of MIT's 35 Innovators Under 35! https://t.co/SDoH1Z63gl— Anna D Goldie (@annadgoldie) June 30, 2021
Backed by Údarás na Gaeltachta and NUI Galway and organised by Aisling Events — which brought EmTech Europe to Belfast in July of this year — the 2022 MIT Innovators Under 35 Europe will attract nominations from tech pioneers whose work has the potential to positively change the world.
The 35 innovators on the 2022 listing will be invited to a Festival of Innovation in recently-opened tech hub Gteic Gaoth Dobhair on 19-20 May 2022.
MIT Technology Review, established in 1899, is the world's oldest and most prestigious technology magazine.
Said Connla McCann, CEO of Aisling Events: “Nominations are now open on our website and it’s our hope to attract applicants from the cream of our young inventors, entrepreneurs and visionaries right across Europe. We look forward to welcoming them to the Gaeltacht of West Donegal to see how the once most-isolated areas of Europe are now at the forefront of the tech revolution. We are keeping a close eye on Covid developments but our intention is to make this the first in-person MIT Innovators Under 35 Europe event since the Covid storm hit."
