31 May, 2017


Sinn Féin Westminster candidate John Finucane has said partnership and collaboration are vital to drive innovation into the future.

Speaking following the Queen’s in the City Impact event at City Hall John Finucane said:

"Our universities are key drivers to economic development through education and research. They attract talent from around the world and have developed partnerships and collaborations locally and globally.

"As we face the many challenges and uncertainty of Brexit, it will be important to strengthen these partnerships to continue to compete on a global level. 

"This includes at a city and regional level to ensure the research and development being undertaken at our institutions is being utilised for maximum benefit to promote economic development and create new jobs.

"The wealth of talent on view at the Queen’s University event is testament to the fantastic work which takes place and must be supported into the future."
