Social Innovation Fund Ireland has recently partnered with Medtronic to create a Fund of €220,000 for Healthy community initiatives around Ireland.  


What is Animate?

Animate is a €220,000 fund open to early stage projects or organisations that have come up with clever ideas to address health and social issues in their community. This fund has two elements this year, the first will seek out early stage innovations that have smart responses to general community issues such as poverty, educational disadvantage etc. The second element will have a specific focus on community health with the new Healthy Community Awards which is proudly supported by Medtronic.
