Partnership Opportunities


The 4th annual Advanced R&D Sourcing & Procurement in Pharma 2020 will return to Boston and serve as the platform for pharma and biotech to share their transformation journey so far, ideas and views towards best practice and innovation in this spectrum. This meeting will showcase 20+ case studies and successful stories from Directors of Procurement, Category Management and Outsourcing from leading Pharma and Biotechs.

Through our conversations with market leaders, our audience is actively assessing the following solutions to achieve their R&D procurement objectives:

  • E-Sourcing and e-Procurement platforms – from virtual marketplace to cloud procurement, our delegates are looking into how digital tools could enable better processes and more efficient sourcing strategies
  • Data analytics and modelling platforms – the common question asked by our audience is how to capture spending data on a granular level for reporting, and how to forecast inventory level to make informed purchasing decisions
  • Vendor management and contract advisors – venturing beyond the preferred corporate vendor list is an inevitability in R&D. How can you manage the risks and perform due diligence? In addition to a new partnership model, what are the inherent risks posed to contract and lifecycle management?
  • Strategic and BPO transformation – the aging R&D procurement model is calling for change. What does this change look like, and how can it be implemented in line with corporate objectives?

If your company offers services and solutions to our audience, we would love to hear from you.
