The Life Science Industry Awards offers an unmissable opportunity to have your work reviewed by leading industry experts; to get recognition from your peers; benchmark against your competitors; and attract new clients, customers and top talent to your organisation. But don't just take our word for it; read some of the thoughts of our past entrants, sponsors and judges from our sister event below

Paul Duffy - Pfizer

Pharma Leader 2018

“It’s very pleasing to get an award like this because I’ve worked in the industry for a long time and I would normally shy away from this type of stuff because I prefer to be to the side rather than the centre. I’m very optimistic about the future more than I’ve ever been in my 28 years, I think we are in a golden year of the industry in Ireland and with huge potential, huge opportunities for people so it’s a very positive time.”

Matt Moran

Awards Judging Co-ordinator & Director, BioPharmaChem Ireland

​“At Kuehne Nagel we very much are heavily involved in the logistics of transport of pharmaceutical and healthcare in Ireland. As a global leader, our new state of the art pharmaceutical facility at Dublin airport is an investment we’ve made to support the growing pharma and MedTech industry within Ireland and that’s a story we’re going to share here tonight.”

Marian Slattery, Pfizer Little Island

Sustainability Initiative of the Year 2017

“We were absolutely thrilled for the whole team and everyone who is at home in Pfizer Little Island. It’s the first time we won an award of this nature (Sustainability Initiative of the Year 2017) and it’s a great recognition for the hard work and the projects that people have rolled out over the last number of years.”

David Phelan, Managing Partner, Accreate

2017 Sponsor

“The reason Accreate got involved in the Pharma Awards was really down to the quality of the award ceremony itself and the quality of the applicants into the awards and it’s been really fantastic in terms of our ability to engage with the right talent and leadership.”

Louise O’Reilly - Amgen Technology Ireland

Operational Excellence Award 2018

“It kind of brings life into the industry, it keeps everyone excited, everyone is motivated to work towards higher goals, higher achievements and to keep coming back and keep winning”

Dr. Vikram Pakrashi

Dynamical Systems and Risk Laboratory, UCD

We are very happy with our double success as the Engineering Laboratory of the Year (2018) and with Dr. Michael O’Byrne winning the Laboratory Staff of the Year (2018). We intend to continue to impact the built infrastructure sector as a research leader through innovations in sensors, algorithms, analytics, modelling and policy guidelines.

Dr. Russell McLaughlin

Trinity College Dublin

“It is a great honour to receive the Young Leader of the Year Award (in 2018) to acknowledge the outstanding work carried out by my team and the ongoing crucial support of our patients, the public and our various funders.”

Brendan McCloskey

It was an exceptional afternoon at the Irish Laboratory Awards 2018 showcasing the talent of the laboratory industry in Ireland. Well done to everyone who took part, it was great to see how research, innovation and new technology is having a positive impact on future products and services.

Matt Moran

As the coordinator of the judging panel for The Irish Laboratory Awards I was particularly impressed by the overall calibre of entries (in 2018). There were excellent contributions from both public and private sector laboratories spanning both industry and basic research.

Dr. Fiona Blighe

Scientific Programme Manager, Science Foundation Ireland & 2018 Awards Judge

As Ireland’s national foundation for investment in scientific and engineering research, SFI was delighted to contribute to the success of the 2018 Lab awards. The impressive scope and breath of the applications to this year’s competition are evidence of the thriving research activity happening in Ireland from across the private and public sector
