About the Event

As the biopharmaceutical industry continues to rely on alliances and collaboration with external organizations to access innovation and obtain market access, internal teams are often confronted with the increasing complexities of systematically and effectively managing partnerships throughout their lifecycle. The function and organizational capability of Alliance Management is now recognized as a critical means to ensure the successful execution of any strategic partnership, acting as a central driver of value, while alleviating aggravations, and meeting alliance goals.

Now in its sixteenth year, Strategic Alliance Management Congress will again unite senior alliance management, business development, project management, technology transfer, and licensing professionals to network, discuss case studies, and 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.
