The Irish Academy of Engineering in cooperation with the Whittaker Institute and the CÚRAM Centre for Research in Medical Devices hosted a half-day seminar in NUI Galway on the emergence of the MedTech cluster in and around the West of Ireland city. The seminar presented an opportunity to discuss the factors behind the origins and initial development of the cluster and in particular the emergence of the first group of indigenous companies focusing on the design and production of modern medical devices.
– November: Innovating for Growth – Improving Ireland’s Innovation Ecosystem – Seminar
The opportunities and the challenges facing the Irish economy are complex, urgent and require a commitment to developing and implementing long term strategies.
