The Connected Health Skillnet is an industry-led learning and development network established specifically to address the skills needs arising from the convergence of the medtech, pharma, ICT and software sectors in the field of digital health. We offer niche training and cross-sectoral networking opportunities at a subsidised cost to private sector and commercial semi-state businesses based in Ireland.

Together with our Contracting Organisation, Ibec, our focus is to enhance the capability of Ireland and Irish based companies to become leaders in the development and commercialisation of Digital Health solutions. 

Initiated by Irish Medtech Association in 2017, the Network has engaged with over 170 companies from across the medtech, pharma, technology, and digital health sectors to upskill 700+ trainees in critical areas to equip the ecosystem. We work with industry to fulfil their development needs and identify suitable programmes to address skills shortages on a company level, and for the sector as a whole.
