Strategic Alliance Management Congress

Advancing Pharmaceuticals and Diagnostics through Collaboration & Partnerships


The approval of new therapies increasingly relies on an ecosystem of strategic partnerships during various stages of the development pipeline. Successfully managing these partnerships has become a critical component to the underlying success of each partner and the biopharma industry.
