Knowledge Day 2018 - Review

PMTC recently held its 4th Annual Knowledge Day, last Thursday, August 30th in the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick. The turnout was excellent on the day and it was a great success. We hope that all of the attendees  found the morning and afternoon sessions on Continuous Processing, PAT, Control & Optimisation and Cleaning very informative and of a great benefit to their company, industry and academic research.

The 4th annual PMTC knowledge day 2018 with over 250 attendees is a key event that brings together academic clusters, industry and government agencies (Enterprise Ireland and IDA)  to showcase advanced practical research into current industry problems.  We would like to thank our key guest speakers and experts from the University of Birmingham, Eli-Lilly, GSK, Rutgers University, Alfa-Laval, Amgen and Steris who shared their insights into topics under the theme of continuous manufacturing, application of PAT, vessel cleaning and cleaning validation.

“PMTC is bringing forward novel technologies in a growing pharma market with extensive opportunities to build on the existing well developed, productive and collaborative engagement between industry and academia in the region, aimed at ensuring the availability of a sustainable supply of high-quality skilled postgraduates to support economic growth in the region”. PMTC interim Director, Ahmad B. Albadarin. “It was fantastic to have facilitated and welcomed our recognised partners and a growing cohort of new companies interested in collaboration.” Ahmad continued.

We would also like to extend our thanks to our Exhibitors, most of which are SMEs currently operating in the business of Continuous Processing, PAT, Control & Optimisation and Cleaning.
