ISPE FOY Awards: NIBRT receives Special Recognition for Novel Collaboration

In the ISPE’s International Facility of the Year (FOY) Awards, Ireland’s new National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) has received special recognition.

PM Group was responsible for bioprocess design in this 6,500sqm Greenfield development in Dublin which provides training and research solutions for the bioprocessing industry.

According to the ISPE ‘Advancements in pharmaceutical manufacturing sometimes come through innovative collaborations that can ultimately lead to “game changing” outcomes. From its regular consultations with industry, the Irish Government determined it was clear that the manufacture of biologics would have a significant impact on the existing pharmaceutical industry and require a highly skilled workforce. The government convened key stakeholders in government, industry, and academia and together they developed the NIBRT Greenfield Facility.

Located on the perimeter of the University College Dublin, which is Ireland’s largest university, the NIBRT building is designed as a medium scale bioprocessing plant specifically for providing manufacturing research and training solutions to industry. The Facility of the Year Awards Judging Panel was impressed with the realization of a novel idea through innovative collaborations that resulted in Ireland now having a competitive advantage in developing biopharma investment’

The state-of-the-art facility was developed as a result of an innovative collaboration between University College Dublin, Trinity College, Dublin City University and Sligo Institute of Technology.
