NIBRT Strategy 2024 - 2028

The process of developing the  NIBRT strategic business plan 2024-2028 concluded in late 2023. By engaging with a range of stakeholders and analysing the wider biopharma operational environment, a number of important trends were identified. 

In response to these trends and associated opportunities, and aligned with NIBRT’s core mission, NIBRT has developed an ambitious strategy that focuses on five strategic priorities. This new strategy and associated business plan for the period 2024-2028 has been approved by the NIBRT Board, and core operational and capital-based state investment has been approved by the Board of IDA Ireland for delivery over the next five years.



Based on our analysis of the market, stakeholder consultations (including with staff and clients) and our assessment of the evolving global environment, NIBRT will focus on five key strategic priorities for 2024-2028, summarised as follows:
