More than 100 companies involved in all-island platform to help supply issues

More than 100 companies have signed up for a new online all-island platform to combat supply-chain and manufacturing challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The InterTradeIreland and TechIreland platform allows businesses to "see quickly, in and beyond their region, who they can work with to combat the many supply chain and manufacturing challenges generated by the pandemic and meet pressing public need".

According to InterTradeIreland, the interactive map will initially focus on healthcare innovation supports.

But they have said they will "soon expand to include broader economic and societal responses to coronavirus".

Those behind the website say more than 100 firms and other organisations are now on the map and it is currently focusing on areas such as personal protective equipment (PPE), contact tracing and ventilators.
