Who are APC?

The APC Microbiome Institute, founded in 2003, is about people working together across the boundaries of traditional research sectors. The APC has created a lively trans-disciplinary environment with clinicians, clinician-scientists and basic scientists from diverse backgrounds working in teams, sharing ideas and resources. Although focused upon the magic and mysteries of the gastrointestinal bacterial community, (the microbiota), the scale and scope of the work has become one of the fastest moving areas of biology, of relevance to all branches of human medicine and veterinary science, and is of growing importance to the economic welfare of society. Here is a link to APC’s Website.


– Last years event.

Times and locations:

September 28th, 2016, Dublin


The Organisers:

Damien Mulley/Mulley Comms started the original Irish Blog Awards, still runs the Web Awards (9th year), the SME Awards and the Social Media Awards (6th year) and the Measurement Conference – Measurement.ie (4 years).

All these events put fun and interactions first and make it as inclusive for everyone by having free nominations, low early bird ticket prices and a lack of formality at the events. Each event is memorable and generates a lot of loyalty and positive coverage.


The Web Awards event itself:

  • The event is relaxed and informal and so there will not be a sit down dinner and it will not be black tie.
  • Finger food will be provided at the beginning and end of the ceremony. It is hoped there will be plenty of time for networking.
  • Rick O’Shea is the MC.
  • This may be the biggest night out for companies and agencies so it needs to be valuable from a contacts and an unwinding point of view.
  • The awards are free to enter and must be done by the business owner/rep
  • Elements will be judged by the general public.
  • Headline and category sponsors cannot be nominated in any category



Here are the categories from 2016, previous sponsors have first refusal on their category for 2016: http://webawards.ie/2015-categories/
