Strategic Alliance Management Congress

The successful development and market access of new medicines is becoming increasingly reliant on harnessing an alliance ecosystem throughout the biopharma value chain. As a result, a growing number of strategic partnerships have driven the need for innovative and systematic methods, processes, and best practices for the successful execution and management of an expanding variety of agreements. As developers strive to derive as much value as possible from investments, what practical solutions exist to overcome innate and ubiquitous partnership challenges while improving organizational Alliance Management (AM) function and capability? How is the Alliance Management skill set evolving to meet the demands of modern drug development? Where are the greatest opportunities for enhancing the overall health and success of each partnership? How can diligent Alliance Management deliver a competitive advantage, drive value for stakeholders, and augment a firm's partnership competency from opportunistic to endemic?  

Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 12th Annual Strategic Alliance Management Congress, May 4-6, brings together senior alliance management, business development, technology transfer and licensing professionals, to network, share experiences, discuss case studies, and to share the components that cultivate successful partnerships. Delegates will gain strategic insights, proven tools, methods, and perspectives from a variety of leaders advancing the art of alliance management.
