OpenApp selected to join Health Innovation Hub

OpenAppHIHubOpenApp have been selected among 16 health and technology firms to join Ireland’s Health Innovation Hub. The hub, an initiative launched by Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly TD and Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD is supported by Enterprise Ireland, The IDA, The Department of Health and Children, Health Service Executive, Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Science Foundation Ireland and UCC.


“The aim is to give medtech companies ready-made access to the Irish health system via the hub to rapidly live-test their products. The big idea is that indigenous companies will use it to develop new products for export, while foreign companies will be attracted to invest near the HIH for the same reason”.

(Irish Times – Feb 2nd 2014)

“Game-changer for the medtech industry in Ireland”.
