Staying up to date with your area of expertise can be a big challenge for anyone, however there are resources out there that will assist you in this and save you a lot of time. As you can see from the homepage, it is easy to use Facebook -BreeBio or Twitter -BreeBio to keep an eye on recent development (especially by ‘liking’ and ‘following’ BreeBio on each).
There are also some regular publications you should familiarise yourself with. Enterprise Ireland, a government organisation “responsible for the development and growth of Irish enterprises in world markets” and who “work in partnership with Irish enterprises to help them start, grow, innovate and win export sales on global markets” publish two publications that I feel will be of assistance to you. You can find the links in the buttons below. I have also provided a link to a more local magazine for DkIT viewers, a magazine ran by the Regional Development Centre called ‘The Link’ which presents updates and developments from the Institute.
Another resource you may be interested in is another publication put together by Enterprise Ireland, entitled “The Irish Life Sciences Research Guide“….you can click Here to view it.
In late 2009, Forfas (Ireland’s policy advisory board for enterprise, trade, science, technology and innovation), produced a publication on the Biopharm industry in Ireland. If you are considering this as a career or simply curious as to the skill requirements of the industry, it is a must-read. You can download the report Here.
Enterprise Ireland also published a directory for all the life science companies based in Ireland….it is an excellent resource and you can click Here to view it.Biotechnology Ireland is a dedicated source of information on all aspects of biotechnology in Ireland. This site is managed by Enterprise Ireland.
