Embracing the Technology-Led Future of Pharma and Biotech R&D

An increased demand for pharmaceutical products, the need to deliver products to market faster and at scale, combined with the ongoing disruption from the pandemic is continuing to cause the industry huge challenges.

 

These factors are forcing pharma leaders to assess their R&D Operations and make significant investments into Lab 4.0 and Automation Technology. However, a combination of strategy, vision, infrastructure, mindset and talent is a prerequisite to drive these types of results and ensure the successful integration and implementation of digitally optimized, connected smart labs of the future.

This event will provide you with the necessary tools to:

  • Drive lab digitalization and implement emerging technology solutions at scale
  • Assess the value proposition for lab automation and develop a roadmap for successful implementation
  • Digitally optimize your laboratory workflows to drive efficiency, productivity and quality gains
  • Create and implement an effective data quality and analytics strategy which facilitates improved decision-making and accelerates drug discovery and research
  • Manage the mindset and culture shift required for digital empowerment and successful transition to end-to-end laboratory automation
  • Align your strategy with the evolving vendor landscape to create strong partnership-driven relationships with solutions providers
  • Achieve enhanced cross-functional scientific collaboration with optimized smart lab connectivity
