“Paradigm Shift” has possibly been an overused phrase in recent years when considering how Pharmaceutical Manufacturing will develop in the future. It suggests a fundamental or even a radical change in our industry, a revolution is upon us perhaps but are we really seeing this happen?

The ISPE UK Annual Conference aims to challenge this notion, in what is a conservative, somewhat risk-averse and highly regulated industry where efficacy and patient safety must always be in the forefront of any decision making process.

For instance, PAT and Continuous Manufacturing have evolved steadily for more than a decade, since the launch conferences and seminars of the early to mid-noughties. Conversely, Pharma 4.0 or the 4th Industrial Revolution, digitisation and the Internet of Things has gathered significant momentum in our industry over the last 2 years.

Whether facilities, process, IT infrastructure or the Workforce of the future, what will Pharmaceutical Manufacturing look like in the coming years? Will the next few years genuinely be a paradigm shift or will we essentially continue with business as usual – a gradual evolution at best?

Join the UK Annual Conference to hear from Industry and Regulators as we move to a post Brexit environment and hear both sides of the story.
