Irish Government Commits to National Health Innovation Hub in 2014

The Irish Government has just announced that a National Health Innovation Hub will be established in 2014, following the success of a Demonstrator project in Cork and an independent evaluation of its role. The Hub aims to support Irish businesses in the pharmaceutical, medical devices and ICT sectors – which together account for over €140billion in annual exports.
