Eimear manages Health Innovation Hub Ireland (HIHI) in Dublin, which has particular responsibility for delivery of HIHI ‘Education’. She provides leadership and contributes to the strategic direction of the Hub. Eimear works closely with her colleagues in Galway and Cork to manage pilot and clinical validation studies and offers the health service access to innovative products and devices that they may not otherwise be exposed to. Wider industry stakeholder engagement and developing networks within the healthcare system to drive health professionals and industry partners towards the Hub is also central to her role.
Eimear has worked in house for multinational pharma, with public health bodies, NGOs and in agency communications, providing insight-led solutions to meet strategic challenges across EU markets. She is expert in stakeholder engagement, creating reputation-defining communications and has extensive experience in management and change strategies. Experience of biopharma, consumer, industry and patient groups, charities, private and public clinical services means she has a breadth of understanding of the health landscape.
Eimear currently writes the ‘Irish Health Innovators’ series for the Irish Times.
