Increasing product speed, agility and scale in the lab.

How pharma companies and industry leaders can reset for growth in the lab beyond coronavirus.

In the era of “fast-moving products” and digital disruption, pharma companies are battling with customer demand to deliver products to market at increased speed and scale.

With Covid-19 severely disrupting research and development (R&D) operations, pharma leaders need to ever-more prepare to safeguard patients and employees, adapt operations for recovery in a pandemic economy and deliver drugs to market quickly where these products are most needed.  

Central to this mission is making significant investments to increase uses of digital technologies to truly digitization the value chain, from R&D through to commercialization, positively impacting drug discovery and delivering products to market on-time, at scale.

In this online series, with an exclusive debate session, we tackle some of the key challenges affecting manufacturing, data management and R&D in the lab.  

Day One - Tuesday 9th March

2:00-2:10pm [GMT]

2:10-3:00pm [GMT]
From lab to innovation leader: How to drive growth at scale with an end-to-end data management solution

To ensure scientists can securely capture, manage, share and gain insight from structured and unstructured data, IBDS will share best practices for managing data and workflows so scientists can spend more time on what they do best – science.


3:00-3:50pm [GMT]
How chemicals and materials organizations are implementing data-driven R&D

Out-of-the-box IT infrastructure requires configuration capabilities to manage end-to-end workflows and roles as a pre-requisite to ensure project success. In this session, Dotmatics will demonstrate their approach to managing data, workflow complexity and diversity in chemicals and materials R&D. They will also dive into solution-driven case studies to drive digitalization excellence in the lab.

SPEAKER: Max Petersen, Associate VP of Chemicals and Materials Marketing at Dotmatics

4:00-4:50pm [GMT]
Solving data science and archiving with a FAIR data-hub

It is time to harvest the fruits of digital transformation. ZONTAL offers the first FAIR data-hub that makes all digital assets ready for data science. In this presentation, we will demonstrate how FAIR data checks all the boxes for compliant data archiving and preservations. We will also show how ZONTAL customers create FAIR data and replace old archives all in one go without using a digital hub.

SPEAKER: Dennis Della Corte, Chief Science Officer at ZONTAL 

Day Two - Wednesday 10th March

2:00-2:50pm [GMT]
Sustainable development goals to future-proof your Covid-19 recovery plans

The Covid-19 pandemic has created a new level of urgency for R&D organizations to move faster and adapt to more complex and high-risk environments with even less margin for error. In this panel, our speakers offer advice on implementing workflow automation to mitigate operational risk and how to continue to invest in the development of advanced solutions while helping teams build sustainable performance goals and operational excellence in the lab.


3:00-3:50pm [GMT]
Driving innovation and efficiency in the lab through digital continuity

Making sure data from across the product lifecycle is complete, available and usable is vital for the success of any R&D organization. In this session, we will share lessons on how to integrate a single source of truth for data collection, so companies can optimize innovation and process efficiency to accelerate the manufacture of industry-leading products.

SPEAKER: Dr. Haydn Boehm, Head of Commercial Marketing - Connected Lab at Merck Group

4:00-4:50pm [GMT]
Tackling data integrity, management and storage in a cost-effective and compliant way

Historically, discovery data has been siloed with limited opportunity for analysis. With the volume and variety of data increasing, storage, management and data integrity are becoming key challenges for the laboratory. This session will share insight on how to transform your data practices, incorporate FAIR from the start and minimize costs.


Day Three - Thursday 11th March

2:00-2:50pm [GMT]
[Live debate] Lab of the future strategy: Automation vs. Augmentation

As technology continues to advance in the lab, it is nearly impossible to shy away from the revolution of artificial intelligence (AI) in scientific research and its utility in the lab space. In this debate roundtable, experts will argue two main trends leveraging AI: automation and augmentation. The experts will deep dive into the benefits of both views and discuss how the pharma industry can profit from digital innovation and prepare for the challenges it brings.
SPEAKERS: Dr. Célia Gasselin, Growth Coordinator at LabTwin
