About “The Future of Digital Technologies in Life Science” Roundtable Series

Atos is proud to present this series of roundtables addressing the current trends and needs in digital technologies in the Life Science environment. Several editions are foreseen, including Europe, Latin America, Middle East and APAC.

The topics to be addressed:

  • Digital in pharma manufacturing – which are the maturity stages in digitalization – how can we embrace all aspects of a pharma business, from optimizing research to anticipating and prescribing issues in the manufacturing line, from connected employees to connected products, from the conception to the final delivery?
  • Sustainability as a must – which are the technologies that support the reduction of carbon emissions in the pharma industry? How can we measure how much we produce and how much we reduce? How can we move from SLA (Service Level Agreement) to CLA (Carbon Level Agreement)?

Europe Edition will take place in Barcelona on 14 December 2021. In view of the new health restrictions by the COVID, it will also be possible to attend remotely. This conference will give access to presentations from top speakers across Life Sciences, and interactions with individuals that will share their own experience, useful links and downloadable materials.

Featured Speakers

Hans Boksem
IoT Integration Architect and Senior Expert at Atos SI

Topic –Predictive and Adaptive Manufacturing Plant

As part of the session, this previous CTO and recognized expert will explain the different stages of maturity in digitalization, the current state of the art and the vision in 10-15 year time.

Lorenzo Nanetti
Partner, Life Sciences Business and Management Consulting

Topic: Clean Research & Development – Optimizing Clinical Trial Kit Deployment

Lorenzo will describe the advantages, based on real experiences, of outsourcing all operations around ordering and setting up of all contents of the study kits (digital, medical, IMP) and the worldwide distribution up to the patient home. This service comprised delivering to all stakeholders one integrated and compliant platform, as well as flexibility to adapt for changing trial’s needs. He will also share how this proposition leads to benefits like 45-60% less administrative time spent by the sponsor team and 15-25% lower kits’ management, handling and distribution costs.
