*Applied Research for Connected Health (A.R.C.H.)*

Applied Research for Connected Health (ARCH) is an Enterprise Ireland and
IDA Ireland funded Technology Centre, which is led by University College
Dublin in collaboration with the University of Limerick. ARCH is an
industry-informed centre providing access to world class clinicians,
academics and patient cohorts to explore and evaluate potential connected
health solutions for the global market.

In its Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation (2006-2013), the
Irish Government proposed the establishment of technology centres to
address the ‘key issue of building and reinforcing areas of strength within
both industry and academic sphere and ensuring that these are highly
networked with each other’.

Given Ireland’s critical mass of medical device companies, pharmaceutical
companies, clinical research organisation and ICT companies as well as the
government’s eHealth Strategy, Ireland is in a unique position to become a
global centre of activity and excellence in connected health and ARCH is at
the centre of this unparalleled connected health education and research
