«A great number of regulatory issues require professional discussion of experts. Over the past 6-7 years of active growth in the industry, discussions have taken place in the format of many different conferences; most of them – however – leave many questions unanswered. There is a need for an online platform that could guarantee a sufficient number of expert discussions without distracting specialists from work,» — said Zakhar Golant, Board Chairman of the Russian Union of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Cluster.
The mission of the integrated pharmaceutical portal is to strengthen the expert community by bringing together professionals from all sectors of the industry at one site. Involvement of leading professionals make it possible for the portal to focus on in-depth expertise of industry specific issues. PharmaPharm plans to present a unique analytics from Russian and foreign experts. All significant events will be addressed on the forum and reflected in the expert materials. Opportunities to seek answers from particular categories of experts will increase information outreach on urgent issues and make the community more transparent and open, and – consequently – more effective.
I consider partnership agreements to be an important step on the road towards unification of the pharmaceutical community, and I am very pleased that the State Institute of Drugs and Good Practices is our first partner. We have worked together from the very concept of the pharmaceutical portal, literally from scratch.
