2nd Global Pharma R&D Informatics and AI Congress


Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd Global Pharma R&D Informatics and AI Congress: Europe which is co-located with the 2nd Medicinal Chemistry Summit: Europe and will be held in London on 29-30 October, 2018. Last year these conferences attracted over 250 industry and academic leaders, and we are looking forward to developing upon the great feedback we received from these participants.

Pharma and biotech companies are currently facing the challenge of big data; with an increasing amount of data constantly being generated, the industry must develop new technologies and utilise new strategies to successfully structure, analyse and integrate this knowledge. The development of drugs is both a timely and expensive process, but with advancements in AI, data analysis and system integration, the industry is accelerating its capacity to create more targeted and effective treatments. This conference is responding to the computational transformation within the pharmaceutical industry, bringing together experts working in all areas of pharmaceutical R&D IT and discovery informatics across more than 7 hours of networking time.

A selection of 2017 speakers included:



  • +40 presentations from industry and academic leaders
  • +7 hours of dedicated networking time
  • Expert-led roundtables and interactive panels
  • Interactive exhibition room
  • Co-located with the 2nd Medicinal Chemistry Summit: Europe
