NIBRT’s unique bioprocessing training facility allows students the opportunity to learn and practice complex technical bioprocessing procedures.
Our World Class Facility
The NIBRT facility is a purpose-built, multi-functional building which replicates the most modern industrial bioprocessing facility. The total building area is approximately 6,500 m² over two floors.
At the heart of the NIBRT building is the bioprocessing pilot plant, consisting of extensive upstream, downstream, fill-finish and the associated analytical facilities. These facilities are all operated in a realistic GMP simulated, operational manufacturing environment.
A Global Centre of Excellence for Training & Research
NIBRT is based on an innovative collaboration between University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin City University and the Institute of Technology, Sligo.
NIBRT was primarily funded by the Government of Ireland through Ireland’s inward investment promotion agency, IDA Ireland (Industrial Development Agency), which is responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland.
NIBRT offers a quality training and research experience not previously possible anywhere in the world.
Biopharma Trends 2018 : Towards Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 represents the adoption of intelligent, data-driven approaches to manufacturing that are already bringing tangible advantages to other sectors.
But what about biopharma? Is Industry 4.0 all-empowering or all hype?
At Biopharma Trends 2018: Towards Industry 4.0, international experts from The Medicine Maker Power List, NIBRT, and the wider biopharmaceutical industry will come together to debate the feasibility of Industry 4.0 – and discuss elements of the fourth industrial revolution that are already making a mark on biopharma manufacturing.
