We are going to have a whole day with exciting speakers on topics that are cutting edge technology and looking into the future for pharmaceutical industry. The pharmaceutical industry has a poor track record when it comes to adoption of new technologies and smarter ways to bring new medicines to the market. The industry is facing several challenges:

  • Patients expect innovations in not only the drug efficacy but also the devices and applications used to administer the drug.
  • The regulatory bodies are increasing their expectations to the level of product and process understanding demonstrated not only during development but throughout the entire life cycle of the drug.
  • The commercial environment is getting harsher, as healthcare payers impose new cost constraints on healthcare providers, now linking cost to the value of the medicine.

These challenges should not be seen as obstacles by the pharmaceutical industry but rather as opportunities to implement newest technological innovations and streamline their work processes, ultimately creating a more sustainable business.

The theme for this year’s annual meeting is New Technologies. The theme is broad which is reflected in the program, including topics such as innovations in PAT for scale-up of bioprocesses, miniaturized lab-on-a-chip, development of medical devices, and effective digital project execution. Joining the speaker panel, will be representatives of smaller start-up companies who have given themselves full degrees of freedom when developing their innovative solutions and ultimately commercializing these.

A futurist will close the formal part of the program by giving us an inspirational look into the future. We want the audience to have a good time, feel inspired and leave the conference with an optimistic look at the future and the opportunities it provides us. So come join us at ISPE Nordic Annual Meeting November 9th 2017 in the beautiful city center of Stockholm.
