This initiative has been taken in an effort to accommodate the increased demand from companies across the pharma supply chain
CPhI Worldwide, organised by UBM EMEA, announced the opening of the annual CPhI Pharma Awards for 2016 – with four additional categories covering the entire pharmaceutical supply chain. Now in their 13th consecutive year, the CPhI Pharma Awards will honour companies and individuals driving the pharma industry forward through innovations, new approaches, technologies and strategies.
This year’s awards are open to applications from across the pharmaceutical industry and are split into 12 categories, four more categories than in 2015, in an effort to accommodate the increased demand from companies across the pharma supply chain.
Following the trends in the market, and the growth in APIs and Excipients, this category has now been split into two separate awards: ‘Excellence in API Development’ and ‘Excellence in Formulation and Excipients’. A new category is also being created to acknowledge achievements in drug delivery devices – ‘Excellence in Pharma: Drug Delivery Devices’.
Additionally, new categories include ‘Excellence in Pharma: Regulatory Procedures and Compliance’, ‘Excellence in Pharma: Analysis, Testing and Quality Control’, and ‘Excellence in Pharma: Corporate Social Responsibility’.
