Realising your Medtech R&D Ambition Programme

Register today for the “Realising your Medtech R&D Ambition Programme”, designed and developed to increase the level and sophistication of R&D taking place in Ireland.

In 2019 the Irish Medtech Association and the Irish Medtech Skillnet jointly funded the development of a strategy with the aim of increasing the level and sophistication of R&D taking place and being globally managed from Ireland. The 7 step guide to realise your R&D ambition was conducted by Technopolis and was based on lessons learned from successful site managers and R&D leaders (see attached executive summary report). The Irish Medtech Skillnet with support from the Irish Medtech Association are delighted to open bookings for the first (pilot) programme to help companies realise their R&D potential. The programme is centred around the 7 steps identified in the strategy led by globally renowned experts in their fields. The programme will take place virtually and benefit from peer to peer best practice sharing across the four workshops.

Programme details:
The cost per delegate is €1,000 for four workshops. Workshops are not sold separately, and will take place virtually.
The maximum number of industry participants per session is 16, with a maximum of two participants from each company/site.

Because this programme will also benefit from peer to peer learning, expressions of interest are sought to ensure the optimum mix of expertise is present for each programme. Interested participants (from FDI and indigenous companies) are invited to fill out the attached short survey to help the organisers determine interest and beneficial mix. https://forms.office.com/r/HhXR6MHp9G
