2022 Bionow Pharma Manufacturing Conference

May 25


The North of England remains a key location for Pharma Manufacturing

The Bionow Pharma Manufacturing Conference will explore the challenges and opportunities for pharma manufacturing in the North. Through a series of presentations and panel sessions, we will start conversations through which manufacturing sites can begin to collaborate, and build on respective areas of interest to better influence academia and Government Industrial Strategy to further support manufacturing in the life science sector.

The complexity of today’s life sciences industry means the need for collaboration is greater than ever
The life science industry continues to face new challenges with shifting regulatory and economic pressures, technology changes, attracting the next generation of talent, and the need to constantly adapt to new business models. Because of this complexity, the need for collaboration has become greater than ever! Join us to navigate this thriving sector and showcase the world-class manufacturing capabilities in the North.
