National Call – Class Of 2019

The 2018 call was aimed at companies, start-ups, SMEs, who have innovative products or services that are at pre-commercial, demonstration or late development phase and have the potential to significantly impact healthcare. HIHI offers a unique tailor made pathway for start-ups seeking pilot or validation studies for commercialisation.

Acting as a broker, HIHI will now match companies with relevant clinical teams, oversee a study of each product in an Irish clinical setting, concluding with an independent clinically validated report. This offers leverage for products in international markets, enhances distribution opportunities and informs further development.
