Please join us on September 26, 2023 to enjoy an evening with Industry experts and ISPE members at High Park Brewery.

Technology Transfers are exciting yet challenging with teams needing to juggle squeezed timelines and variability in the availability of information, resources, or materials. Even the most organized teams can find themselves “building a plane as they fly it”. In this event, the lessons learned, tools and strategies of such a tech transfer team will be explored.

Due Date to Register: September 12!

Technology Transfers offer some of the most exciting yet challenging project executions for any engineer, project manager or scientist, often in a squeezed timeline due to a strong push to get manufacturing up and running.
Regardless of how detailed the planning phase is for these projects, variability in the availability of information, resources or materials can push even the most organized teams into situations where creative problem-solving is a necessity.
As a result, teams can often find themselves in a highly dynamic situation or feeling as if they are “building a plane as they fly it”. In this case study, the lessons learned, tools and strategies of a persevering and iterative tech transfer,
focusing primarily on the engineering and process development teams, will be presented. Additionally, an exercise in perspectives between a CDMO and a client will be explored.
