EIT Health has established an Ireland base as the firm seeks to solidify its existing network and build new partnerships. The company is looking to establish new partnerships from firms across business, healthcare delivery, education and research in order to further drive innovation.

The company has already announced that Cork-based data solutions firm Bluemetrix will join its network. Bluemetrix CEO Liam English said: “We are delighted to be joining EIT Health at this exciting time as it expands in Ireland. We are currently supplying innovative data lake solutions to the NHS on their COVID-19 data, with a particular focus on making this data available to researchers who are investigating solutions to the pandemic.”

“We are looking forward to working with the existing network of EIT Health partners in Europe, to further drive innovation in this area and help bring advanced data solutions to the healthcare space.”

Discussing the company’s new Ireland base, EIT Health Ireland-UK MD Christina Petris said: “This increase in locations will bring a wealth of advantages to the network and Ireland’s ecosystem alike.

“As we look to expand and grow in both regions, our local team can support partners, connecting them with other innovators across Europe to drive collaboration on projects that have the potential to transform healthcare and deliver real value for patients.”

Along with its expansion in Ireland, the company is continuing to seek partners from the UK. EIT Health’s UK Partnership Development Lead Graham Armitage said: “We continue to be committed to growing and supporting current and new UK partners, who play an instrumental role in developing innovations that have societal impact and improve lives.”
