B!G Award Partner – MSD

The B!G Idea are so lucky to have MSD as an award partner and having their support over the past two years means the world to us and to our innovative young students. Based across Ireland in counties Carlow, Cork, Dublin, Meath and Tipperary, MSD are without doubt a vision for the future. With more than 2800 employees across the six sites they are one of the country’s leading healthcare companies.

Working at the forefront of Science and Technology, they are responsible for manufacturing many life saving medicines. Their impressive portfolio of vaccines and products help to treat a wide range of illnesses including oncology, arthritis, hepatitis C, and HIV. Incredibly, their main focus is in making vaccines that prevent illnesses and they continue to develop treatments for conditions if and when they develop.

“The journey to invention and discovery is guided by science – and inspired by patients”


It’s not all about the humans though, MSD take animals into consideration aswell offering animal health professionals, farmers, pet owners and governments the widest range of veterinary pharmaceuticals, vaccines and health management solutions and services. MSD Animal Health work towards preserving and improving the health, well-being and performance of animals and delivering health products and solutions that improve the health, performance and wellbeing of animals. Their animal health sector focuses on four key areas: intensive livestock, ruminant, companion animal & equine, and animal health technology.

It doesn’t stop there either. MSD’s global initiative for mothers is to help create a world where no woman has to die while giving birth. This is only one such initiative.

It feels a little bit like we are all in safe hands having such a remarkable and dominant company as one of our amazing partners and we look forward very much to continuing to work with them in the future.
