PMTC 5th Annual Knowledge Day
Our 5th Annual Knowledge Day took place on Thursday, 29 August in the Kemmy Business School, UL
We are embarking on a 'new phase’ after securing €5 million in funding. We provide advanced technology solutions for the pharma-sector.
PMTC has appointed a new director and will expand its research focus to include data analytics as it launches ‘PMTC Phase 2’ following confirmation of funding from Enterprise Ireland, with support from IDA Ireland.
A key objective for the centre is to place small and medium enterprises into direct contact with multinational corporations operating in the pharmaceutical and biopharma sectors in Ireland, allowing them to collaborate in an innovative research programme.
