Back to Basics: Transforming the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain European Conference

22-23 October 2012 - Berlin, Germany

Pharmaceutical Supply Chain is defined as the management of product supply from raw material sourcing to active ingredient manufacturing through formulation, packaging and distribution to the patient. It encompasses all related activities across the product lifecycle including clinical supply, scale-up and transfer as well as outsourcing and product discontinuation. A key requirement is the safe and reliable supply of quality medicines through a supply chain which is responsive to true demand and understands the voice of the customer.

This conference will provide insight into many of the critical-to-success factors in pharmaceutical supply chains. It will focus on how the industry can achieve world-class performance levels and transparency in the end-to-end networks - with a better understanding of how to deliver value to all stakeholders to which the pharmaceutical supply chain industry relates.

The conference will achieve this by combining examples of best practices both within the industry as well as from other relevant sectors. It is also intended to include latest updates and perspectives from regulatory authorities.

  • Entering a New Era of Supply Chain
  • Lessons from Non-Pharma Industries
