Three research partnerships agreed this month will link Irish academics with universities and innovative companies in the United States.
A deal focusing on smart cardiovascular repair technology was signed between National University Ireland Galway’s CÚRAM research centre, Queen’s University Belfast and North Carolina State University. The partners will combine expertise to improve existing technology and develop medical devices for long-term heart monitoring, Science Foundation Ireland said in a statement issued on 12 March.
The project will have a budget of €1.7 million and will be led by Manus Biggs at Galway. Funding for the work comes via the US-Ireland R&D Partnership Programme.
