From Science to Shelf: Innovating through Formulation
This is the third two-day workshop organised by SCI’s Formulation Forum and it follows the highly successful ‘Disruptive Innovations’ workshop in January 2019.
In this workshop, we will discuss and showcase how today’s ideas can become a commercial reality. Why? Innovation is critical due to rapidly increasing competition in a shrinking world, constant commoditization and a drive for shorter product lifecycles to deliver faster growth. Companies are engaged in blocking and leap-frogging the competition, reducing their supplier’s power and reducing the chance of competitor substitutes.
Internal processes to structure innovation are as important as external services and cooperation. Industry has adopted new innovation models and moved on from the old ivory tower model of R&D to modern debate on exploration versus exploitation, buying in, repurposing for new markets or engaging in co-operative projects.
SCI’s Formulation Forum events are equally open to major companies, SME’s, academics and students from all areas, including scientists, engineers, patent attorneys, marketing experts and business managers with an interest in formulation innovation and science. This event is especially suited to those in academia and industry that are looking to improve their current innovation practices or entrepreneurs and future research employees looking for advice and support.
