The Global Generics & Biosimilars Awards 2021winners were rewarded at a live ceremony in Milan on Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at the Stella Polare, Fiera Milano, Milan, Italy. You can read further details of each winner in the Digital Winners Supplement here.

The Global Generics & Biosimilars Awards 2021 is the one night of the year when the off-patent pharmaceutical industry’s greatest achievements are put in the spotlight and will reward companies across the off-patent industry – including small-molecule generics, biosimilars and value-added medicines – by recognizing their successes over the past year.

Our awards categories crown the industry’s leading companies, both on a global and regional basis; highlight achievements in biosimilars and value-added medicines; and also recognize the industry’s biggest deals, regulatory milestones and company leaders.

API suppliers and other industry partners also have their own categories in which to compete for recognition, while companies are also presented with awards for their CSR activities, their intellectual property strategies and other business development initiatives.

As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, there has perhaps never been a more appropriate time to recognize the ongoing efforts made by the worldwide off-patent industry to provide access to quality, effective medicines at affordable prices around the globe.

The 2022 Awards will be back in Frankfurt next year - we hope to see you there!

GGBA is absolutely a sensational event for the global pharma industry to be a part of it. Entire process of being  nominated, evaluated and assessed is exciting for the nominee. It also brings global pharma professionals together and exchange opportunities. I was the finalist  for "Leader of the Year" award and it was so rewarding in terms of learning from other finalist, from Sandoz, Accord Health, mAbxienceand Stada. I don't think I will ever be able to miss entering the awards in the years to come. It keeps me motivated entire year.
