3rd Annual Knowledge Day Review

Leaders in the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector in Ireland gathered for the third annual PMTC Knowledge Day. The event provided a showcase for the cutting-edge research supported by the centre with key note addresses from industry thought leaders who shared their vision of the future for the pharmaceutical sector.

Speakers included industry experts and academic leaders from international organisations such as Hyde Engineering, Pfizer, University of Cambridge, Novartis and Ecolabs, among others.

“Ireland has a renowned pharmaceutical sector: Research and development in pharmaceutical manufacturing and process efficiencies is critical to strengthening and developing it. PMTC research is bringing forward novel technologies to advance Irish-based biopharmaceutical companies which ultimately will deliver highly-skilled postgraduate jobs, driving enterprise and employment growth in the region,” PMTC Director, Chris Edlin said. “This annual event brings together academic groups, industry and government agencies to showcase state-of-the-art applied research into contemporary industry problems. It was extremely pleasing to welcome established partners plus a growing cohort of new companies interested in collaboration,” Dr Edlin continued.
