HSC Industry Engagement


Northern Ireland’s Health & Social Care System has a rich history working with industry to introduce the most innovative and effective treatments and care to our citizens.  In 2019 the Health and Social Care NI (HSCNI), Research and Development Division established an Industry Engagement to engage with incoming industry enquiries and work proactively with health care orientated local, national and international SME’s and large corporations to develop and grow clinical trials and collaborations across NI’s healthcare sector.

We are a small, dedicated team of professionals with extensive industry, clinical and academic expertise.  We are highly experienced in designing and developing health research, R&D, and connecting and supporting successful collaborative partnerships. 

We work closely with external stakeholders and industry representatives including Association of British Pharmaceutical Industries (ABPI), UK Commercial Clinical Operations Group (cCOG) and Northern Alliance Advanced Therapies Treatment Centre (NA-ATTC), to ensure we are well aligned and responsive to the needs of the life and health science industry.
