(bio)Pharma Ireland high-level seminar, The Future of (bio)Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

(bio)Pharma Ireland was formed in 2015 as an SSPC initiative to highlight the collective research priorities and industrial capabilities of the Irish (bio)Pharmaceutical sector within the European community; encourage research collaborations and opportunities; and ultimately contribute to the development of European policy.

The working group, coordinated and chaired by the SSPC, has representation from pharmaceutical industry including Biopharmachem Ireland (BPCI), government agencies: Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the IDA; and academic research organisations: the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) and the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Technology Centre (PMTC).
