The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation currently has no plans to offer financial incentives to engineers to return to Ireland to work in industry here. However, through Enterprise Ireland, the Department does invest in techlifeireland.com, a website focused on building awareness globally amongst Information and Communication Technology engineers of the wide variety of jobs available in here and quality of life available in Ireland.
