NI-CHIC: A Model for Academic Engagement with Industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Northern Ireland Connected Health Innovation Centre has been established to promote business led collaborative Connected Health research between academia, industry and government. Established in June 2013, the Centre currently has 26 members from backgrounds including hardware development, software development, data analytics, and domiciliary care provision. The projects have also utilized partnerships with public health and charity-based organizations. To date, the Centre has completed four calls for proposals, resulting in tangible outputs in the form of novel hardware and software, field trials, data, and shared insight. This paper describes the Centre in detail, provides two case studies demonstrating completed projects, and discusses the challenges, lessons learned and impact thus far.
