Health Innovation Research Alliance Northern Ireland (HIRANI)

The Health Innovation Research Alliance Northern Ireland (HIRANI) was established in 2019 as an alliance between Queen’s University Belfast, Ulster University, The Department of Health, The Department for the Economy and Industry. The objectives for HIRANI are to provide a single point of contact for external collaborators to be able to understand areas of research and innovation excellence in Northern Ireland with a view to collaboration and investment. In addition, HIRANI will drive increased collaboration and research coordination within the health and life science community within Northern Ireland.

HIRANI has a bold ambition to bring together the component strengths within Northern Ireland, provide leadership and focus and as a result drive prosperity and improve patient outcomes within the region.
