Publication date: 1 December 2019 | Report language: EN
Medtech is a very important sector in Ireland, employing over 38,000 people and annual exports of €12.6 billion. The sector counts 450 companies of which 40% are of foreign origin. The Irish Medtech Association represents more than 200 of these companies and asked Technopolis to help them in developing a strategy for increasing the R&D intensity of the Irish Medtech Sector, amongst others by helping Irish daughter companies of foreign multinationals to influence their mother companies to start R&D activities in Ireland. Technopolis proposed a five step approach (Kick off and inception, System analysis, Options development, Strategy Development, Strategy Implementation). In project 3002 the kick-off of the project was done. This project covers steps 2-4 (until and including strategy development).
