SeerPharma Symposium: Funding for Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices

October 25, 2016
by SeerPharma

SeerPharma’s inaugural Symposium was a great success with Operational and Quality Directors from over 30 Pharmaceutical and Medical Device / Medical Technology companies such as CSL, Patheon, Alere Medical and MSD in the crowd. 

The highlight of the evening was seeing Directors and Managers of companies interacting with their counterparts and networking in an informal manner. The event focused on how to increase the profile of Quality and Operational staff within a Pharmaceutical or Medical Device / Medtech organisation. To assist, the Australian Government have a number of initiatives to help you with any operational expansion and training activities you may have planned.

“Thank you once again for the Symposium it was a great networking exercise moreover informative.”
- Luis Rojas, Quality Assurance Manager, AsureQuality
