This contributes to a dynamic environment that fosters excellence in both learning and research. Our staff also maintain strong links with indigenous and multinational pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical devices, electronics, and materials companies located in Ireland which help stimulate entrepreneurship, support technology transfer and facilitate effective education and innovation partnerships.
