"Medical Technology and Devices Industry in the West of Ireland: An Industry Based Case Study"

CISC undertook this research project in 2003 on behalf of the Western Development Commission, in order to facilitate its strategy deliberations. This work built on previous research undertaken by CISC personnel in respect of the medical devices sector in the BMW region in Ireland, which explored the relevance of the clustering concept for this sector in the Atlantic Technology Corridor.

A related study reviewing international trends in a number of industry sectors was undertaking in parallel for the WDC (see link below).
