A105 - Pharma Research: Insights & Challenges

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Jon Bentley, Commercial Director, OpenAthens

Despite developments in online availability of information, researchers in pharmaceutical and life science companies still find it difficult to get access to vital information, to easily move from one information source to another or to work effectively outside of the office. The industry body ABPI estimates $11.4M per day is spent on R&D by the pharmaceutical industry. Library and information managers, researchers, publishers, and technology partners are keen to ensure that researchers have a smooth journey to access that valuable data. Bentley shares the results of research carried out with global pharmaceutical companies worldwide to assess the key challenges and possibilities for collaboration. He presents the six key challenges and five insights from the research. Attendees also receive a copy of the analysis: “Identity and Access Management for Global Pharmaceutical Companies.”
