How to Drive Innovation in Formulated Products Through Improved Data Management

Sponsored by: Dassault Systèmes - BIOVIA

Focused on:

  • Data Management
  • Digital Continuity
  • Connected Lab

Date: 7 March


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Companies developing formulated products face challenges in rapidly introducing new products to market as well as meeting customers’ expectations. Roadblocks impeding time to market often come from reduced R&D productivity. Much of R&D experimental data is only used once, may exist in paper systems or in siloes, and is not searchable. This makes it difficult to find and share data among researchers which can hamper innovation. To succeed, R&D organizations must speed up the pace of innovation.

During this session, strategies will be discussed for increasing lab, researcher, and experiment efficiency, the technology available to drive these efficiencies, the application of modelling & simulation methods to design better experiments as well as how formulation development labs today are achieving the next level of successful innovation.
