How Irish Industry will need to adapt for tomorrow Speakers: Fergus Elebert, Veolia and Padraig Liggan, Alexion

Veolia’s Imagine 2050 report brings together thinking around the global trends that will impact on Irish business between now and 2050. Fergus Elebert will explore what that could look like for the pharmaceutical, food & beverage and manufacturing industries in Ireland; particularly in terms of resources, supply chain and processes. Padraig Liggan will give further insight to this from a client, pharmaceutical industry and process engineering perspective.
