Smart Labs, Automation & Technology Europe

Leveraging Technology to Streamline Workflows, Enhance Decision Making and Optimize Lab Connectivity

The Smart Lab, Automation & Technology Virtual Europe event will provide you with the necessary tools to:

The European pharma and biotech industry is currently going through a digital overhaul to modernize labs, accelerate R&D, enhance early discovery and optimize connectivity. This transitional phase is critical to success, requiring a clear strategic assessment and evaluation that will enable a roadmap that delivers optimal ROI and sustainable improvements.

 

Whilst the benefits of lab automation are considerable, navigating the complex journey towards Lab 4.0 is challenging and must be driven by decisive leadership, vision and strategy. Through a series of presentations and interactive discussions, you will acquire the necessary tools to:

  • – Define the strategic roadmap for successful lab digitalization, paving the way for smart, efficient, connected labs of the future

 

  • – Identify and validate suitable technology solutions to enhance and support your laboratory R&D efforts

 

  • – Define best-practice automation strategies which will increase lab efficiency, capacity, speed and quality for accelerated early discovery

 

  • – Develop an effective data quality and analytics strategy that will enhance speed and accuracy of decision-making

 

  • – Facilitate advanced connectivity and cross-functional collaboration across the enterprise for deeper scientific insights, by leveraging Lab 4.0

 

  • – Guide stakeholders through cultural change and develop a digital mindset critical for the transition towards end-to-end laboratory automation

 

  • – Develop partnerships and nurture relationships with solutions providers that can ensure technology solves unique business problems and is aligned to business objectives
