There has been a lot of events, with the SSPC Research Consortium, BioPharmChem Ireland Conference, I-Form Industry Collaboration. There was also a trip to Brussels
SmartWorkshops (formerly known as SmartLabs)
SmartWorkshops is a new offering for students of our digitalisation programmes – live remote workshops where learners can engage hands-on with topics in digitalisation and automation like industrial internet of things, data management, visualisation, storytelling, predictive analytics, simulation, automated process control and digital twins.
The unique selling point here is that it will allow students to gain valuable experience working with cutting edge technologies using real world data, generated in real-time from Innopharma’s own industrial processing equipment and process analytical technology from our QC lab in Sandyford, where students can interact with the physical equipment from anywhere in the world.
Key SmartX Updates this Quarter
Figure 1 - Screenshot of the SmartX HMI featuring improved data visualisations
Our SmartX technology received several major updates in the past quarter, all of which have added big improvements in the areas of security, performance and scalability. Our most recent updates include:
Integration of InfluxDB timeseries database technology with the SmartX HMI which enhances the accuracy of data visualisations as well as faster performance and the ability to handle more data
A new multi-process Python script execution engine has been developed which greatly improves the safety, robustness and performance of our low-code / no-code process automation technology
Further enhancements to our MQTT IoT device support to improve security and cloud connectivity – these updates are being rolled out as part of SmartWorkshops
Migration of SmartX Cloud Apps to newer VueJS based user interface technologies – the legacy code has been replaced with more up to date technologies giving us the benefits of improved security and performance as well as making the code easier to maintain (and we have a lot of code in SmartX!)
Level 6 Pharma Labs Begin
This October & November we will facilitate, for the first time, the Level 6 Pharma Science labs for a total of 285 students onsite at Innopharma in both our Process and Analytical labs.
The labs will run over a total of 9 days. We are very busy preparing for kick off on October 31st. Exciting times ahead!

In September, Ian flew to Boston to meet with Congress to discuss important topics; Industry 5.0, Transformative Skills Initiatives in Africa and building medicine manufacturing capabilities in SSA. Matt Moran also attended these meetings! It was great to see such a high level of interest and support from the Congress.
