Companies aiming to provide healthcare responses to the COVID-19 crisis can now collaborate via TechIreland’s new online platform.
Powered by InterTradeIreland, the cross-border platform allows businesses to quickly see who they can work with to combat the many supply chain and manufacturing challenges generated by the pandemic.
Presented as an interactive map and directory, it will initially focus on healthcare innovation supports – but will expand to include broader economic and societal responses to coronavirus. It will also contain links to public tenders. Already more than 125 businesses in the health sector have registered innovation responses to COVID-19 in vital areas such as PPE, contact tracing and ventilators, including over 30 companies in the Dublin Region. Dublin has companies offering Infection Control, PPE, Medication, Diagnostics/Testing and related solutions.
TechIreland hopes to build out the platform beyond healthcare to other areas of business in response to the fast-changing situation.
