Due to extensive timeframes for technology development and the need for robust clinical validation of new products, the financing of R&D in the Life and Health Science sector can be very challenging. C-TRIC provide advice and signposting in relation to both private, including seedcorn and venture funding, and public sector support for proof of concept, new ventures and collaborative networks within this sector. C-TRIC has strong linkages with all the relevant Regional Development Agencies including Invest Northern Ireland, IntertradeIreland and Enterprise Ireland.
