Top 10 US Medical Device Leaders in Galway to Meet Irish Medical Devices Companies-image

Tuesday, 12 June 2012

NUI Galway and Enterprise Ireland Host Business Symposium on Winning Business in the US Medical Device Market   Industry leaders from household name American medical devices giants such as Boston Scientific, Medtronic and Stryker are in NUI Galway later this week to address a major symposium for Irish companies. The event on Friday, 15 June, organised by Enterprise Ireland and NUI Galway, will provide first-hand advice on ‘Winning Business in the US Medical Device Market’ from US industry experts, while over 80 individual buyer meetings have also organised between the US representatives and the Irish companies in attendance.  Boston Scientific, Medtronic, Terumo, Stryker, Arsenal Medical, Sapheon and MedCelerate are among the US companies presenting at the event. Irish companies, Aerogen and Vistamed, will also give their insights into how they successfully sell into the US market. In Ireland, the medical technology sector employs over 25,000 people in over 250 companies, with exports of over €7.2 billion per annum which continues to grow year-on-year. With fifty percent of the Irish medical technology company base now composed by indigenous firms, the importance of the US - the largest medical technology market in the world – is critical to their success. Speaking in advance of the event, Dr Emer Mulligan, Head of the J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics at NUI Galway, said: “In terms of innovation, research and development, Ireland has a proven pedigree in the med tech sector. However, there are many business aspects to cracking the US market - from procurement, to personnel, to legal issues, regulation and business culture - that must be appreciated. At this unique event, we hope to provide these invaluable business insights that will ultimately open doors in the US and enhance the success of Irish companies.” Gerry Murphy, Enterprise Ireland’s Americas Director, added: “The US Med Device sector is undoubtedly the most important med device sector worldwide, valued at $127 Billion per annum and expected to reach over $151 Billion by 2015. This is a really practical way for Irish medical device companies to learn from US experts and proven Irish companies about how best to be successful in the world’s main market. Apart from the strategy and technical mentoring on offer, this event provides an opportunity for these Irish firms to meet executives and buyers in individual meetings.  We expect business partnerships to begin at this event that will ultimately lead to increased exports.” ENDS

NUI Galway Celebrates First Cohort of its Youth Academy-image

Thursday, 14 June 2012

Over 60 primary school children from across Galway City and County successfully completed NUI Galway’s Youth Academy at a special ceremony recently. The Youth Academy programme ran over a six-week period on Saturday mornings with a number of courses on offer including: Italian Language and Culture; Philosophical Discovery; Psychology- Who We Are, How We Think and What We Do; and Engineering- Structural, Environmental and Climate Studies. The Youth Academy aims to work with high-ability primary school children in the local community to support their learning and academic development. The programme aims to inspire entry into third-level education by introducing children and their families to university life and by creating positive perceptions of the University and its’ academic programmes. This pilot project was successful in receiving funding from the Bright Ideas Initiative which was launched by Professor Chris Curtin, Vice President for Innovation and Performance at NUI Galway, who said: “We live in the knowledge economy and while education is important activity in its own right, it is vital that the economy is fuelled by able and knowledgeable citizens. The Youth Academy provides a fantastic start to children who at such an early stage are committed and eager to learn.” The Youth Academy is the result of a collaboration between NUI Galway’s Mary Dempsey, College of Engineering and Informatics, Dr Caroline Heary, School of Psychology, Lorraine McIlrath, Community Knowledge Initiative and Dr Colm O’Reilly, Irish Centre for Talented Youth, Dublin City University. Galway City Mayor Hildegard Naughton, who attended the ceremony, stressed the importance of all institutions in the education sector partnering on activities and responding to the education needs of the wider community. She congratulated NUI Galway on their vision for establishing the Youth Academy and bringing a sense of academic challenge to the young primary school children. Captain Brian Sheridan, a parent of one of the Youth Academy students, said: “It was a great few weeks, enjoyed thoroughly by my son Tom and, as a family, we all benefitted from just listening to him extol the virtues of each lecture. The future is indeed bright with children pioneering the uncut path.” For further information on the Youth Academy email the coordinator, Geraldine Marley at youthacademy@nuigalway.ie. -ends-

Workforce Competencies Focus of 16th Annual Health Promotion Conference-image

Friday, 15 June 2012

The 16th annual Health Promotion conference will take place at NUI Galway on Thursday, 21 June. The conference entitled, Embracing New Agendas for Health Promotion Action: Developing workforce competencies for effective practice, will be comprised of plenary lectures, workshops, panel discussions and both poster and oral presentations. Current public health challenges demand new and changing competencies and skills for effective Health Promotion practice. This year’s conference considers the competencies required for effective Health Promotion action on non-communicable diseases, including adopting a settings approach and addressing the social determinants of health and health inequalities. Keynote speakers will include: Professor Michael Sparks, President of the International Union for Health Promotion and Education; Professor Sylvie Stachenko, Dean of School of Public Health, University of Alberta; and Professor Stephan Van den Broucke, Professor of Health Psychology and Prevention, University of Louvain. Key partners involved in the CompHP Project - Developing Competencies and Professional Standards for Health Promotion Capacity Building in Europe, a European project funded by the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers will also present at the conference. In addition to building consensus on core competencies and quality standards for Health Promotion practice, the CompHP project also developed a framework for an accreditation system for health promotion practitioners and education and training courses. Such work will ultimately ensure best practice and will strengthen the capacity of health systems to address health challenges and improve population health, both nationally and at a European level. Professor Margaret Barry, CompHP Project Leader and Director of the Health Promotion Research Centre at NUI Galway, said: “The work of the CompHP Project creates a new dimension in European Health Promotion by establishing the means and methods by which agreed core competencies and quality standards for Health Promotion can be implemented across Europe to stimulate innovation and best practice, thereby strengthening the capacity of health systems to deliver on improved population health.” The conference will address the need to redirect resources to health promotion and prevention and prioritise health promotion as an essential function of the Department of Health and the health service. The need for renewed investment in the implementation of health promotion policies and practices will be addressed, including workforce development, in order to ensure that the health promotion workforce is prominently placed and equipped with the core competencies to implement current knowledge, policies and practice. -ENDS-

RTÉ’s Siún Nic Gearailt Launches New Media Course at NUI Galway

RTÉ’s Siún Nic Gearailt Launches New Media Course at NUI Galway-image

Monday, 18 June 2012

Television broadcaster and RTÉ newsreader, Siún Nic Gearailt, has launched a new MA in Communications (MA sa Chumarsáid) at NUI Galway.  The one-year MA course, the first of its kind to be offered entirely through the medium of Irish, emphasises practical tuition from radio and television production to presenting, journalism, and acting. The course is offered by the University’s Irish language centre, Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta in An Cheathrú Rua in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht. Students specialise in one of four streams: visual studies, applied journalism, digital media or acting for the screen. Describing how the course, previously the Higher Diploma in Applied Communications through Irish, helped lay the groundwork for a successful career in broadcasting, Siún said: “The course was very hands-on and covered a lot of the skills you need to build a career in broadcasting. The fact that it was in Irish was a huge plus, at a time when TnaG/TG4 was just taking off and there were a lot of new production companies setting up in the Gaeltacht and indeed around the country.” “The new MA will give students a real eye-opener on the media industry. If you think all that’s involved is sitting in front of a camera or a microphone and letting fly, you’ll soon change your mind. There is a vast amount of work going on in front of and behind the camera, in the control room, in the edit suite and, of course, in compiling the daily news. The structure of the MA sa Chumarsáid is designed to give the student a good understanding of some of the practical issues as well as a solid grounding in theory and ethics.” The MA sa Chumarsáid is a one-year fulltime Level 9 course (90 ECTS credits). Applications may be made through the PAC online postgraduate application system at www.pac.ie/nuigalway. Full details may be found at: www.oegaillimh.ie/acadamh. For more information contact Dr Seathrún Ó Tuairisg at 091 595101 or email cursai@oegaillimh.ie. -ENDS-   Seolann Siún Nic Gearailt ó RTÉ Cúrsa Nua sna Meáin in OÉ Gaillimh Is í an phearsa teilifíse agus léitheoir nuachta RTÉ, Siún Nic Gearailt, a sheol an cúrsa nua MA sa Chumarsáid ag ócáid in Ollscoil na hÉireann, Gaillimh, le déanaí.
