About This Two-Day Education Conference

Biotechnology is a highly specialised segment within the pharmaceutical space.  In recent years biotechnology has evolved to lead the industry standard in medicines manufacturing by implementing cheaper and faster processes for producing drugs.  Biotechnology has similarly expanded to include new and diverse sciences and with the advent of biosimilars, these medicines are becoming more accessible for patients globally. In parallel to this expansion, the concept of biotechnology also encompasses a wide range of procedures.  

The biotech industry in transition faces many challenges, the most fundamental one being how to successfully optimise and scale-up manufacturing processes and achieve successful commercial scale manufacturing. This requires years of experience and in-depth specialised know-how.

This two-day, must-attend, education conference will use case studies to explore current technologies, regulatory requirements and will provide you with techniques for the evaluation and implementation of cutting-edge technologies. In-depth discussion will focus on cost-effective, flexible, sustainable manufacturing facilities design and implementation.

The Programme will include seminars, case studies, workshops and Q&A sessions.
