This paper analyses the changing role of Ireland in the global process R&D networks of the pharmaceutical companies. It is based on data collected in an email survey of all pharmaceutical establishments in Ireland and face-to-face interviews with 13 companies. It outlines the various stages of the process R&D cycle and assesses the involvement of the Irish establishments at each stage. Far from a uniform undifferentiated activity, process R&D comprises a range of activities. The results show that although Irish plants are increasing their involvement in process R&D, this involvement tends to be concentrated in the last stages of the cycle
