This conference focuses on the future for UK life sciences in the UK.
It will be an opportunity to assess changes to regulation and evaluation - and the support, frameworks, partnerships and investment required for the life sciences industry to navigate the way forward.
Areas for discussion include the use of data and real-world evidence, efficiencies within clinical trials, and taking a mission-led approach to healthcare challenges.
Delegates will also examine priorities for sector investment, funding and growth, with the new Life Sciences Innovative Manufacturing Fund, and in the context of:
- the Innovative Medicines Fund
- the plans for the sector set out by the Government in the Life Sciences Vision
- the industry moving forward on the back of developments during the COVID-19 pandemic
Areas for discussion include:
- Life Sciences Vision - implementation of strategic ambitions - priorities for channelling investment
- mission-led approach - stakeholder collaboration - targeting investment and funding - learning from the development of the COVID-19 vaccine
- sector growth - support for innovation and manufacturing - government funding - developing the business environment to support growth and healthcare ambitions - global competitiveness
