Weclome to the 3rd annual BioSolve User Group Forum

Harmonizing the community’s approach to sustainable innovation

Due to the US holiday conflict, BioPharm Services decided to change the meeting date to April 2018.

Following our successful 2016 forum in London, this year’s event will be held in the global life sciences superhub that is Boston, MA.


What to expect

The forum is designed to help users get the best out of BioSolve, explore new features, share experiences and network with other users. Most importantly, the sessions provide a platform to allow users to have input on the future direction of the BioSolve product range.

This year, we will have panel discussions, an early morning workshop with our internal experts, Q&As and, for the first time, a poster networking session.

Agenda is now officially set with our steering group:

  • Day 1
    • BioSolve solutions update
    • Standardization of BioSolve Process – Challenges and Opportunities
    • Key note speaker – Gib Hedstrom from Hedstrom Associates about “Sustainability”
    • Towards sustainable future
    • Technology mapping and modelling platform
  • Day 2
    • Collaborative approach in the industry
    • BioSolve solutions update (pt.2)
    • Future visions with the community
