As the strategic and operating environment for Pharmaceutical R&D becomes more cost-constrained and evolving portfolios require increasingly more investment, critical decision-making and methodology is evidently a crucial element in PPM.

The conference will look at how to structure portfolio management into the organization, how to transform R&D indicators and PPM parameters into successful revenue producing projects and portfolios that align corporate business goals. This year approach will be both on technical side, on understanding how right processes, realistic analysis and correct interpretation of data can be translated into market success; but also how organizational aspects, how capacity management, leadership skills can build high performing teams and strategic decision making.

Importantly, this conference will not neglect the other essential topics including prioritization, internal resource management, risk management and especially de-risking strategies (partnerships, outsourcing) as main factor of market success, managing pipeline from early stage to commercial stage, with a view on market access and generic portfolio management.

XIX International Botanical Congress in 2017!

XIX International Botanical Congress in 23-29 July, 2017 in Shenzhen China.


The International Botanical Congress (IBC) is a major convention that brings together scientists from around the world to discuss new research in the plant sciences. The IBC is held once every six years. The Congresses are particularly notable in that they not only bring together scientists from many countries, but also from many disciplines within the broader research fields related to the plant sciences, including botany, mycology, ecology, horticulture, agriculture, and other related fields. The increasing knowledge about plants—their history, growth, uses, interactions with other organisms, and roles in the ecosystem—is becoming progressively important for the stability and sustainability of the human endeavor and, indeed, of all life on Earth.

The XIX IBC will be held under the auspices of the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS), through the International Association of Botanical and Mycological Societies (IABMS) of the IUBS. The XIX IBC is organized by the Botanical Society of China and the Shenzhen Municipal Government.  It will be held in the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, Shenzhen, China. The first circular will be sent in 2015 to all botanists and institutions through society mailings and upon request.

The XIX IBC has turned over a new leaf in the history of IBC with China being the first developing country to host the Congress. In addition to being a developing country, China is also a fast growing economy and one of the world’s biopersity hot spots. China’s successful experience in building an innovation-oriented society while protecting biopersity will help the Congress in the endeavor of achieving a sustainable earth.
