EuropaBio and Novartis invite to explore a pathway for green transition in the biopharmaceutical ecosystem

Brussels, 13 October 2021 

At the time of the 25th Anniversary of EuropaBio, we would like to look to the future and the green transition that will shape healthcare for us all.

EuropaBio and Anniversary sponsor Novartis are inviting to the open webinar ‘‘Healthy planet, Healthy people” which will take place on the 25th of October and aims at kicking off the discussion on the pathway for green transition in the biopharmaceutical ecosystem. This biopharmaceutical ecosystem has a complex and resource intensive profile, from research, to manufacture through to use and disposal of highly regulated therapeutics.

Change is Now, with companies investing in long term product and process design for carbon neutrality and circularity.  Join us to hear from pharma, sustainable pharmaceutical engineering, policy makers, consumers and the European Commission on the priorities, actions and outcomes to ensure that healthy people go hand in hand with a healthy planet.
