Fastnet & NIBRT Announce Strategic Talent Partnership
Fastnet is delighted to announce our strategic talent partnership with NIBRT National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training, a world class institute that provides cutting edge training and research solutions for the biopharmaceutical manufacturing industry. This coincides with a very exciting time in NIBRT's development, the construction of a new state-of-the-art advanced therapeutics research and training facility.

Supporting NIBRT's continuing development and growth, the Fastnet Total Talent Partnership (TTP) is a bespoke strategic end-to-end talent acquisition project solution that delivers enhanced resourcing capabity and agility to pivot and scale, operating as a credible extension of the clients HR function. Fastnet is a boutique firm focusing on developing effective and enduring partnerships with all stakeholders.

NIBRT’s mission is to help the growth and development of the biopharma manufacturing industry by providing cutting edge training and research solutions.
The Institute is based on an innovative collaboration between Industry, Government and Academia and opened its world class facility in 2011 in Dublin, Ireland. The facility was primarily funded by the Government of Ireland through Ireland's inward investment promotion agency, IDA Ireland (Industrial Development Agency), which is responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland. NIBRT offers a training and research experience not previously possible anywhere in the world.
