Four projects with partners based in south Connemara have received a combined €22m in funding.

Three of those are client companies of Údarás na Gaeltachta – Eirecomposites, HiTech Health Manufacturing and InverMed.

That same company, along with the University of Galway and Microfocus Galway Ltd, is also involved in the Digi-Stent project, which has received funding of €4 million, to create wireless digital stents.

HiTech Health Manufacturing, located at An Tulach, has received €6.5m to develop a project to capture data during the cell manufacturing process.

Meanwhile, Selio System, a pre-biopsy intervention device created by Inver Med in Indreabhán, has also received €4 million.
