Academic institutions have always been at the forefront of innovation. Big pharma are facing major patent cliffs and slashing internal R & D budgets whilst academia is finding it tougher to gain funding for research projects. This has led to the two groups to become more closely intertwined than ever.
Academia Pharma: Development Partnerships will create a unique environment for leading industry professionals to share novel case studies, develop future strategies and most importantly create mutual partnerships to support drug development.
The event will bring together an international community of experts from academia, biopharma, healthcare and research institutions and councils all in order to share best practice in collaborative research and development.
In addition, you will be matched with up to 10 fellow attendees with similar research and development requirements in the one of a kind collaborations speed networking session.
