Driving & Leveraging Innovation for Pharma

Executive Forum

BREXIT will bring some uncertainty to pharma operations in Europe. New product types such as biologics and personalised medicine will increase pressure to develop innovative solutions for factory building and engineering solutions.

The Executive Forum will highlight these limitations and also look at how other branches shape innovation. Our programme features top speakers from Astra Zeneca, GE Healthcare, Pfizer, Wuxi Biologics, University St. Gallen, and the former Ministry of Health and Economy Ireland.


Top keynote speakers from big pharma manufacturers Sanofi, Takeda/Shire, Gilead, and Johnson & Johnson will give insight into their approaches to innovation and how to form a successful next decade for their operations. The FDA will give an update on important regulation.
