Event description

Description

The British Irish Chamber of Commerce and our sponsors KPMG and Ulster Bank have come together to address the various challenges and opportunities that Brexit has brought about for business interests in the UK and Ireland.


This event will be the 9th instalment of the series following the Infrastructure, ICT, Financial Services, Brexit, Agri-food SME and CAST (Culture, Arts, Sport and Tourism) Seminars that have taken place in the UK and Ireland.


In the light of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union, this seminar will explore the impact this will have for the Life Sciences sector across these two islands. It will examine the impact of Brexit on the current regulatory environment and research collaboration and will seek to answer whether Brexit is ‘A Prescription for Change’.


This Seminar entitled: ‘Brexit: A Prescription for Change?’ will focus on two specific topics:


1. Convergence or Divergence? The Regulatory Impact of Brexit
2. Life Sciences Research


Experts, speakers, stakeholders and commentators will address these topics with interactive participation from the audience.


Speakers include:

Cllr. Mick Finn, Lord Mayor of Cork

Professor Anita Maguire, Vice President for Research and Innovation, University College Cork

Yvette Cleland, CEO, Clinical Professionals

Brian MacSweeney, Director, KPMG, Audit Cork
