In China, For China: Technology, Capacity, and Market Access Emerging markets were once seen only as a source for low-cost production, and outsourcing strategies were developed to leverage that cost advantage. As emerging markets become increasingly valuable as pharmaceutical end markets for multinational companies, a new paradigm is developing. Gain first-hand knowledge of the key issues involved in doing business in China and the potential advantages of domestic production in the strategies of sponsor companies for external development and manufacturing.

Partnership Strategies: Innovation in Business Models and Technology What are the key issues in make-versus-buy decisions? Is it capacity- or technology-led or is it a combination of both that drives more strategic and collaborative partnerships? In a co-presentation, learn of innovative approaches that pharmaceutical companies and CDMOs/CMOs are taking in continuous manufacturing for solid dosage products and key take-aways that can be applied in other outsourcing models and activities.
What is the optimal business model for providing specialized technology-based contract seervices? Gain the insight of one company involved in such a decision involving solid-state chemistry and advanced polymorph screening services.
