Alien works with SMEs to secure grant funding under the EU’s research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020.

The EU announced it would be investing €80bn in companies between 2014 and 2020 under the programme.

The programme aims to secure Europe’s global competitiveness by focusing on new projects and getting them running quickly.

Alien Technology chief operating officer Paul Pietrangelo said Dublin is “one of the best places in the world for startups to grow”.

“With the presence of both research-focused universities and big tech companies, Dublin is a becoming a centre of excellence for innovation. We hope to work with many local startups in achieving their financial and commercial goals,” he said.

The company was introduced to the country through ConnectIreland, the State-owned firm responsible for the Government Succeed in Ireland initiative.

Jobs minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor said “Alien Technology Transfer is among a rising number of companies who have decided to set up a European base in Ireland.

“Once again, this is a testament to our talented Irish workforce and also to Ireland as a great place to do business.”

The firm has opened applications for project management roles.

“The company chose to locate in Dublin because of the highly educated, multilingual workforce, as well as the booming start-up culture and high concentration of small and medium-sized companies,” the firms said in a statement. ConnectIreland chief executive Joanna Murphy welcomed the foreign direct investment (FDI) from Alien.
