HSE-HIHI Spark Ignite 2021 innovation competition
HSE-HIHI Spark Ignite – NOW OPEN
Following the phenomenal success of last year’s HIHI Spark Ignite competition, the HSE and the Health Innovation Hub Ireland are delighted to announce the launch of the HSE-HIHI Spark Ignite 2021 innovation competition.
The HSE-HIHI Spark Ignite 2021 is the only staff-facing, bottom up, innovation competition available to the 115,000+ HSE employees.
Its mission is to enable HSE staff to validate unmet needs in healthcare, determine if a market exists for their proposed solution, product, service, or process improvement to meet that need, and to support the further development of those ideas.
HSE-HIHI Spark Ignite is open to all disciplines and departments nationally within the HSE. Its mission is to enable HSE staff to bring their ideas for improvements towards reality. A national remit allows more opportunities for people to test their ideas and vie for funding.
Applications are simple and straight forward submitted via our online portal at www.hih.ie. Successful applicants will benefit from a bespoke healthcare focused innovation workshop delivered by experts to hone their idea and proceed to pitch for €3000.
