The medtech industry plays a vital role in saving and transforming lives. We believe that with the right supports and policies in place Ireland’s global medtech hub can shape the future of healthcare and strengthen its international position. Our new strategy unlocks an evolved formula for advantage centred on collaboration, innovation and capability as the key to success.

In implementing the new Irish Medtech Association strategy, the group will continue to be a driver of collaboration bringing key players in our established ecosystem together, from startups and FDI multinationals to investors and key opinion leaders, to offer industry foresight, share best practice, and advocate for policies that matter to the sector.
