HSC Innovations is a partner in a new academia, business and clinical (ABC) collaboration funded by InterTradeIreland.
InterTradeIreland and BioBusiness recently announced development of a collaborative network across Academia, Business and Clinicians (ABC) to yield ground breaking innovations in Irish healthcare.  The ultimate objective is to improve treatments, diagnoses and quality of life for patients, but the programme also expects to lead to £13 million in business opportunities and will develop Ireland’s capabilities as an innovation island.

HSC Innovations is one of the clinical partners who will work with BioBusiness as it delivers this InterTradeIreland funded ABC collaborative network, advising and enabling stronger links into primarily clinical capability. HSC Innovations will assist in identifying clinical partners for collaborative projects that will lead to the creation of three new market or product development projects in the areas of personalised medicine and connected health, and HSC clinicians will also have the opportunity to be considered for inclusion in the clinical evaluation of all three commercial opportunities.

Other clinical partners include HSC R&D Division of the Public Health Agency, C-TRIC (Altnagelvin Hospital), and the Royal College of Surgeons.  All nine universities in Ireland are also part of the collaborative network. Further information can be found on the InterTradeIreland website here.
