Webinar online event


An Integrated Ecosystem for Transforming Medicines Manufacturing

This symposium brings together pharmaceutical industrialists, regulators, policy makers and academics to look at how the community can grow medicines manufacturing in the UK and accelerate the adoption of advanced manufacturing and digital technologies. To achieve this we need an integrated approach, harnessing the combined efforts of the stakeholders to lead the transformation that will enhance quality, cost and sustainability of medicines manufacture, ultimately for the benefit of patients.


  • Regulatory: Protect and improve public health by enabling the earliest access and high-quality supply of safe, effective, and innovative products through proportionate, data-driven decisions on risk and benefits
  • Industry: Leveraging the combined UK Innovation Ecosystem to deliver a more agile, adaptable and scalable medicine manufacturing supply chain
  • Academia: Highlight strategic commitment to world class research and innovation for advanced manufacturing technologies, sustainability and to build the talent pipeline, developing existing assets



  • We have a fantastic line-up. Please see attached agenda for further details
  • The afternoon will consist of:
  • x2 Keynote Presentations
  • Manufacturing Session
  • Regulatory & Policy Session
  • Panel Discussion, ‘Advancing Advanced Manufacturing Technologies’
  • There will be opportunity to engage via Q&A

ISCMP Background:

  • The first International Symposium on Continuous Manufacturing of Pharmaceuticals (ISCMP) was set up in 2014, by request of Janet Woodcock, Head of CDER at the FDA, to align on continuous manufacturing. The jointly run symposia, between MIT and CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub, has generated a number of White Papers, Case Studies and business case discussions across the 2014, 2016 and 2018 events
  • The ISCMP website including links to previous events and outputs can be viewed here
