PHARM Connect Congress

PHARM Connect Congress is the largest and most important pharmaceutical and biotechnology business summit in the Central Eastern European and the CIS region, taking place annually in February, in Budapest, Hungary.

Since the event’s launch in 2011, the number of participants has reached more than 500 from over 20 countries in the region and beyond. Over the two days of the congress leading service providers of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector – covering a wide range of profiles from API’s and contract manufacturing to processing, biopharma solutions, biopharmaceuticals and biologicals, drug delivery systems, clean rooms, laboratory equipment, monitoring & inspection systems, quality control, packaging and labelling, automation, plant engineering and maintenance, logistics, cold chain storage and distribution, warehousing and many others – have the opportunity to meet the key decision makers of their targeted companies.

 

Exclusivity

Strictly operating on an invitation only basis guarantees that the highest level of delegation is present. Each solution provider at PHARM Connect is selected based on requirements and interests provided by attending pharmaceutical professionals prior to the event.

 

Most up-to-date market insights

In order to ensure the quality of the conference programme, we work closely together with leading local and regional associations, European and global media partners and our Programme Advisory Committee, whose members are well-known pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry experts of leading international companies. The conference programme offers the most up-to-date market insights into research and development, production, engineering, supply chain and quality management related topics.

 

Pre-scheduled business meetings

Over the two days, service providers will have the opportunity to meet with leading directors and industry experts through a series of pre-arranged one-to-one business meetings and several informal networking activities, maximising business efficiency, presenting a unique opportunity to develop meaningful and valuable business relationships.

POST-EVENT PROGRAMME | 23rd February 2017

Site visit to the Research Centre for Natural Sciences at the Hungarian Academy of Science (MTA TTK)

The congress provides the opportunity to visit the Research Centre for Natural Sciences at the Hungarian Academy of Science (MTA TTK) in Budapest; this is limited for 60 delegates only and available on a complimentary, first-come, first-served basis at 17:00 on 23rd February. The MTA Research Centre for Natural Sciences carries out multidisciplinary research in natural sciences.

Priorities are given to the following disciplines:

• Organic chemistry

• Materials- and environmental chemistry

• Molecular and cellular life sciences

• Cognitive neuroscience and psychology

The visit will start with a short, introductory presentation about the MTA TTK. Afterwards, the delegates will have the opportunity to choose a tour to the four research institutes:

Organic chemistry

Developing novel types of reaction, the synthesis of new ring frames and compounds in the field of organic small- and supramolecular molecules, determination of chemical structure and interpretation of experimental processes by instrumental techniques and theoretical calculations.

Materials- and environmental chemistry

Research of discovery and experimental development in some key areas of materials- and environmental science, with special emphasis on chemical aspects thereof. Exploratory research in the field of nanoscale functional materials and application of the results in integrated nano/micro systems.

Enzymology

Researchers at the Institute of Enzymology investigate the structure of proteins and how they function – at the level of molecules through to complex organisms. They make use of the latest biochemical, imaging and genetic engineering methods to reveal the structure of proteins, their properties and the biological functions enzymes perform in the human body. Further important areas of research are signal processing and transmission, the regulation of protein breakdown and how cancer evolves. The researchers also want to find out what the actual protein composition of the cell looks like and how complete biological systems function. Target-based drug development.

Cognitive neuroscience and psychology

Research of discovery and applications in experimental psychology, human-, developmental and comparative psychophysiology, social development psychology, social psychology and cultural psychology.

TRANSFER: The bus will leave in front of the CORINTHIA Grand Hotel Royal on February 23rd at 4:00 p.m. and will return after the visit at approximately 8:00 p.m.
