Developing and Managing the Next Generation of Occupant-Centric, Agile, & Sustainable Lab Facilities

19 March 2024

Boston, MA, USA

As the pharma industry continues to embrace new ways of working, they must adapt the way they plan, design and manage their lab infrastructure.

Designing labs that are space-efficient, occupant-centric, adaptable, sustainable and future-proofed is critical for lab owners, users, and managers to support their long-term vision and accelerate R&D.

However, limited space and budget, complex stakeholder dynamics and facilities management needs, and digital transformation, are just some of the challenges the industry must navigate.

Join us in Boston in March to collaborate with lab operations, estates, facilities management and estates professionals and solve these issues head on.
