Following the very successful 5th European Pharma Licensing Symposium held in Vienna in 2010 and an equally exciting Xth International Pharma Licensing Symposium in Barcelaona in 2011, the European PLG Council will be holding the 6th European Pharma Licensing Symposium : September 17th - 19th 2012 : in Budapest.

Straddling the romantic Danube River, with the Buda Hills to the west and the start of the Great Plain to the east, Budapest is recognised as the brightest jewel on the Danube and is often described as the most beautiful city in central Europe renowned for its culture and history.

The venue for this event will be the Marriott Hotel located on the banks of the Danube, with registration and a Welcome Drinks Reception on the evening of September 17th. We will be hosting a Gala Dinner on Tuesday 18th cruising up the Danube, a perfect networking opportunity whilst taking in the illuminated sites of this beautiful historic city.

The theme for the meeting will be “Success Factors for Licensing” and the subjects will include topical issues such as Licensing vs. Acquisition; Royalty Stacking and Renegotiation; Regional Growth and Biosimilar Development Strategies as well as the latest developments on AMNOG and the OTC Market in CEE countries.

Delegates & Online Contact System

The EPLS meetings attract senior executives involved in business development & licensing across within the pharmaceutical & biotechnology industry from across Europe, Canada and USA. All registered delegates received access to the online delegate system allowing them to contact all other registered delegates prior to the conference.

Topical issues being covered include :

  • Latest developments on AMNOG and the OTC Market in CEE countries.

Partnering Sessions
