Why You Should Attend

8th Annual Strategic Alliance Management for Pharma

Building strategic alliances is not a question for the pharmaceutical industry, it is a reality that impacts its whole development: from R&D cycle to commercial issues. The main challenge is now to build efficient structures that would give the operational framework and tools to manage the whole alliance process, to work successfully with differences, between diverse partners and complex cultural dimensions.

This marcus evans conference will look at the value creation within Alliance Management and how to empower and align the role of Alliance Management within the company. The delegates will benefit from experienced case study and learn how to maximise the potential of the collaboration in order to bring the relationship to mature stage, how to create a strong commitment beyond size and cultural differences and create the road for new and fruitful development.
