Written answers (Question to Further and Higher Education)

I should first explain this project is managed by the Tyndall National Institute/UCC in the first instance. I understand that the EIB loan of €75m for a new building, together with other investments competitively won through SFI and others such as philanthropy, borrowings and own resources, equates to a total investment package in excess of €100m over the lifetime of the NDP 2018 to 2027.
