Pharma 4.0 Conference

On the 16th April 2018, PharmOut and ARCS Australia will co-host Australia’s first Pharma 4.0 conference. In this forum, we will be explore the concepts, technology and benefits surrounding Pharma 4.0 and examine how we can apply it to pharmaceutical and medicinal products manufacturing.

Industry 4.0 – otherwise known as the 4th industrial revolution. It has generated solutions that are already changing the face of industries such as transportation, logistics, and aviation. With such an exciting range of technologies available that can be applied in new and innovative ways, it is well worth seeing which ideas can be pulled out applied in the scope of pharmaceutical and medicinal manufacturing as ‘Pharma 4.0‘.

The aim of this Pharma 4.0 conference is to connect, share knowledge, generate conversation and engage representatives from across all industry sectors on this hot topic.

PharmOut is dedicated to helping shape a better Australian life-science and pharmaceutical manufacturing sector and we believe that adopting the principles behind Pharma 4.0 is a fantastic opportunity for us all. The concepts behind Pharma 4.0 can often be overwhelming, however, it is becoming increasingly relevant as we proceed into the future. If, as industry professionals, we all jump in early and tackle the topic together we will better understand what technology is available, which technologies are appropriate and how to incorporate the technology in both a compliant and ethical way.

We would like to invite international and Australian presenters to share their ideas and experiences relating to Pharma 4.0 and look forward to seeing you all at the conference.

We are delighted to confirm that the TGA has accepted our invitation and have the enviable task of striking the balance between protecting the public from unreasonable risk and inhibiting the advance of technology.

Venue: The Manningham in Melbourne, 1 Thompsons Rd, Bulleen VIC 3105
