Global Generics & Biosimilars Awards 2020

Our expert judges have assessed all the entries for the Global Generics & Biosimilars Digital Awards 2020 to create the shortlist of Award finalists.

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the Global Generics & Biosimilars Awards.

Over the past month, our panel of 17 industry expert judges has reviewed all the entries to produce a shortlist that demonstrates the wealth of innovation, dedication and hard work that the Generics, Biosimilars and Value Added Medicines industries have shown over the past year.

The full range of industry activities is represented: from acquisitions and regulatory achievements, to legal strategies, value added medicines initiatives and CSR breakthroughs. The Global Generics & Biosimilars Awards provides the industry with an opportunity to acknowledge its highest achievers across all parts of the industries, and to recognise both corporate and individual achievements.

Winners of the categories will receive their Awards during an online event on November, 3.
