The 2nd annual Advanced R&D Sourcing & Procurement in Pharma will return to Boston, US on April 30 – May 1, with the support of Lead Partner Science Exchange and Expertise Partner Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Building on the success in 2017, this meeting will once again gather 80+ senior leaders from the community, taking a closer look at how R&D sourcing and procurement experts can accelerate scientific activities, particularly during early discovery and clinical phases. The summit will help participants evaluate the shift from strategic sourcing to category management and identify what emerging partnership model can be adopted to mitigate risks. We will also hear from Elizabeth Iorns, CEO & Co-Founder from Science Exchange about new technology platforms to remain competitive.
Here are some of the other key case studies that will be addressed during the summit;
• Pfizer reveals how R&D procurement can help scientists to deliver value and speed internally
• Thermo Fisher Scientific discusses asset utilization across R&D value chain to optimize capital efficiency
• Merck’s top tips on why early drug discovery procurement can make a huge impact on commercial success
• Shire shares how strategic category management can improve partnerships and operational efficiency
