Dear friends and colleagues,

Industry 4.0 (or the 4th industrial revolution) promises a step-change in productivity, operational efficiency and manufacturing flexibility. The disruptive nature of this trend and the associated benefits are due to a combination of several factors including technological advancements (such as internet of things, artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, robotics, etc.), cultural shifts (such as digitization, customization etc.) and strategic initiatives on a global scale.

The pharmaceutical industry has traditionally relied on long product lifecycles that enabled the development of new processes and the introduction of technological innovation to happen at a slower pace compared to other manufacturing sectors. However, the 3rd decade of the 21st century brings about key transitions in market, production and regulatory challenges that need to be addressed if competitiveness, growth and profitability rates are to be maintained.

The “Pharma 4.0 Future” conference held in Athens during October 22nd - 23rd 2021 will offer insights around key concepts, current implementations and future trends of Industry 4.0 and the pharmaceutical sector through a series of keynote speeches and discussions with participation of both academic and industrial experts.
