Development Partnerships Summit

22nd and 23rd February 2017

Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre, Cambridge, UK

Welcome to the 3rd AcademiaPharma Conference

Europe's Premier Summit to Fast-Track Academic Collaborations with the Pharmaceutical Industry: Forging Relationships that will Revolutionise Future Drug Discovery and Development

Academic institutions have always been at the forefront of innovation. Big pharma are facing major patent cliffs and slashing internal R & D budgets whilst academia is finding it tougher to gain funding for research projects. This means that it is more important than ever for the two groups to establish meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships.

Academia Pharma: Development Partnerships successfully creates a unique environment for leading industry professionals to share novel case studies, develop future strategies and most importantly create mutual partnerships to support drug development.

The event will bring together an international community of experts from academia, biopharma, healthcare and research institutions and councils all in order to share best practice in collaborative research and development.

  • Start-up to IPO: capitalising on scientific discovery
