OBN PharmaTuesday: ‘Should Pharma Externalisation go to 100%?’ – Cambridge

Tuesday 14 April 2015

Should Pharma Externalization go to 100%?

At this excellent upcoming PharmaTuesday, senior speakers from all sides of the industry will debate the contentious question whether biotech really can afford for big pharma to externalise R&D completely? Expect vigorous debate.


Key questions to be explored:

* How far should pharma externalization go?
* Will it hinder emerging companies if development expertise is lost from very large companies?
* What will be the economic effect of further externalization on the R&D and CRO sector?
* Will pharma sponsored innovation hubs be a substitute for pharma R&D organisations?
* At what point, if any, could further externalisation harm the ecosystem whose growth it has driven?
