Enterprise Ireland (EI) in partnership with the Health Innovation Hub Ireland recognise the importance of clinical innovation to address current unmet clinical needs for patients and staff within the healthcare system and wider medtech sector.
The HIHI Clinical Innovation Award is designed to support all healthcare professionals in Ireland to explore the commercial feasibility of their innovative ideas with the potential to transform the way medical care is delivered in Ireland and abroad.
The Award welcomes innovative technologies at all stages of development from concept, early stage research through to more advanced projects.
The winners of the award will receive a €15,000 Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation Feasibility Fund to investigate the commercial feasibility of their innovative idea in Ireland and international markets.
Winners will be announced at EIs Big Ideas Event in October.
Winners will have an opportunity to engage with the Clinical Entrepreneur Programme in the NHS.
