Curam, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices, based at NUI Galway has been awarded the academic contribution to medtech award by the Irish Medtech Association at the Medtech Rising: The Irish Medtech CEO Conference and Awards Ceremony.

The event was jointly hosted by the Irish Medtech Association, Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland.

Prof Abhay Pandit, scientific director of Curam (pictured), said: “We are very proud to be a research partner to 27 MedTech companies currently, and we look forward to growing and enriching these networks and helping the Irish medtech sector develop a solid research base here in Ireland and continue to lead the field as one of the top five global medtech hubs.”

Acting Irish Medtech Association director Eoghan O Faolain said: “The reason Ireland is in a position to compete with major medtech hubs such as Massachusetts and Minnesota is thanks to the diversity of the sector here and the collaborative innovation that takes place on a regular basis between Irish small and medium enterprises, foreign direct investment multinational companies, and top universities, as well as other strategic sectors such as ICT, design and manufacturing.

“With Ireland ranked first for labour productivity, flexibility of talent, as well as attracting and retaining talent, it’s no surprise that medtech growth is underpinned by job creation, with 38,000 people working in the sector now and an additional 4,000 jobs to be added by 2020.”
