IRIS Tools and Services Portfolio

Through previous investments IRIS has access to a wide variety of tools, services and resources for it’s community.

These tools and services are delivered free at the point of use but resource allocations will still need to be approved by the IRIS Resource Allocation Panel or Directors where relevant.
