CESPE Conference 2023

Challenges & Solutions for transitioning to sustainable (bio)pharmaceutical manufacturing

CESPE is pleased to announce the second edition of the annual CESPE Conference on Thursday September 21, 2023.

Through insights from different stakeholders, this event aims to address and tackle the current challenges related to the transition into a more sustainable (bio)pharmaceutical industry.

  • What are the goals for the industry and which initiatives are being taken by the (bio)pharmaceutical companies?
  • Where are the current bottlenecks limiting innovation and how can we solve them?
  • Which tools are required to achieve ambitious goals?
  • What is the role of both academic and industrial partners?

The physical event in Ghent will provide you with many opportunities to network with our academic members, industrial partners and policy makers. Therefore, it is perfectly suited for senior scientists, industrial decision makers and policy makers active within the ecosystem.
