The pharmaceutical industry is perfectly positioned to enjoy the benefits of industrial IoT technologies.

The evolving and strict regulatory landscape within the pharma sector has resulted in the industry remaining cautious towards adopting emerging technology. 

However, recent years has seen falling R&D productivity, cost increases, compliance and non-adherence challenges, patents expiring and stakeholder expectations evolving which is driving the pharma sector to focus their energy on IoT (Internet of Things) and other emerging technologies. 

The pharmaceutical industry is in fact perfectly positioned to leverage IoT technologies across manufacturing plants, supply chains, delivery routes, clinical trials, R&D and many other areas.  

Whilst some early adopters have already started exploring IoT to enable end-to-end digital integration across the supply chain, many are still wondering where to start and what to do.

How will you identify the right use cases and ensure your IoT & Smart Pharma strategy will succeed?

Tackling these issues head on, the IoT & Smart Pharma Summit will unite pharma specialists from Industry 4.0, IoT, Technology, Innovation, Strategy, Clinical Trials, Manufacturing and R&D functions to hear about latest use cases delivering ROI across the sector.

The IoT & Smart Pharma Summit 2020, will enable you to:

Forecast future technology trends, manage digital disruption and apply innovations to solve unique business problems

Effectively manage the costs and complexities associated with automation and digital optimization strategies to maximize ROI

Establish a digital foundation and define the digital transformation and automation roadmap to ensure emerging technology projects are successful

Streamline the business by integrating new technology and automated processes that optimize efficiency as well as reduce operating and capital costs

Exploit Industry 4.0 and apply digitization strategies that will improve safety and predict the health of assets

Lead business and cultural change through leadership and change management, empowering stakeholders for digital transformation

Mini Symposium / Workshop: Monday 16 March 2020 (12:30 – 17:00)

Artificial Intelligence in Life Sciences: Cost-Benefit of Implementation and Avoiding Common Pitfalls


Recent developments have confirmed that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) has the potential to reshape the life sciences sector. Whether the ultimate driver is cost efficiency, optimizing clinical trial design and execution, or potentially accelerating speed to market, AI technology can enable a true competitive edge by potentially achieving all three.

By attending this symposium, Innoplexus will demystify AI & ML, explore its potential, alleviate concerns and set realistic expectations about what this powerful technology can do.
