HSC Innovations is actively developing a range of healthcare technologies on behalf of the five Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Trusts and seeks partners to build commercial successes from those technologies. Opportunities include diagnostics, biomarkers and medical devices. In many cases patent protection is in place or being obtained, making the offerings particularly valuable.
The service has now announced publication online of information about technologies that are currently available for licensing. The first non-confidential summaries are now available at http://technologies.hscinnovations.org, including a novel diagnostic for meningitis and a gel for treating wounds. More propositions will be added as further technologies become available. In each case contact details are provided so that further information can be obtained. Details can be browsed or searched and an RSS feed is available.
