Strategic Alliance Management Congress

Archived Content

Save the Date! The 11th annual Strategic Alliance Management Congress will be held May 5-7, 2014 at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, PA.  

Now in its 10th year, Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Strategic Alliance Management Congress is the life science industry's preeminent event, bringing together alliance management, business development, technology transfer and licensing professionals, to network, share experiences, discuss case studies, and trade insights into the components that cultivate successful partnerships. Join us in Philadelphia, as we meet the challenges of collaboration with a decade of advancing alliance management!

Why Attend? 

Within the pharmaceutical industry there is a growing emphasis on alliances and collaboration with external organizations driven by the need to access innovation, fill product pipelines, and develop companion diagnostics. While alliances are not new to industry, increasing efforts to forge partnerships with diagnostic companies, venture capitalists, government and academic research centers, present unfamiliar challenges for creating operational harmony. The alliance management function operates as a central driver for value generation between partnering organizations; alleviating perturbations, while striving to meet alliance goals.

Delegates will gain strategic insights, proven tools, methods and skills to create successful, harmonious alliances, while addressing common alliance issues.

Event features include:

  • 100+ Attendees with Dedicated Networking (View Partial List of Participants) 
  • 20+ Expert Presentations and Panel Discussions
  • Roundtable Discussions on Overcoming Today's Alliance Challenges
  • Interactive Workshops for In-Depth Training
