Since they began, the Scrip Awards has sought to applaud the essential role that the pharmaceutical, biotech and other allied industries play in improving healthcare. Its trophies span the entire range of industry activities, from new drug launches and clinical trials, to innovative deals, outsourcing and fundraising. In the current climate it’s more important than ever to recognize what has been achieved.
This year, we have introduced a new category – China Biopharma Leadership Award – to reflect the rapid maturing of China’s biopharma sector, thanks to the development of homegrown biopharma companies, CDMOs and increasing investment in the market from global multinational biopharma companies.
Over the past 16 years, the Scrip Awards has carved out a unique place in the industry calendar, with attendees coming from around the world to the prestigious ceremony, which this year will take place online on 2 December.
