Being a Project Manager in the pharmaceutical industry can take a wide variety of forms. Be it for process development, tech transfer, installation of new manufacturing lines, building of facilities or other areas of expertise, projects in the industry are often facilitated by skilled Project Managers.
The pharmaceutical industry has regulations and best-practice manuals for most of its production processes. Nonetheless Project Management as a discipline is often excluded from the standards of performance defined for many other fields in the industry. It is apparent the industry needs trained Project Managers in order to achieve success in the numerous processes, projects and developments.
PDA has perceived the need to offer this discipline its own space. Solid education of future Project Managers is needed as well as the establishment of best practice documents to support the development of Project Management for successful outcomes in pharmaceutical science. One of the first initiatives taken will be the novel conference Project Management in the Pharmaceutical Industry, set as a one-day event in one of the most vibrant cities of the world: Berlin.
If you are Project Manager working in the pharmaceutical industry you cannot miss this event. The conference has been designed by certified Project Managers with many years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. We will discuss topics such as project management across industries, tech transfer and best practice. This event will offer you the possibility to expand your professional network with other experts in similar positions–together we will set the first step for the future of education of Project Managers in our industry.
Looking forward to meeting you in Munich,
