The 7th Annual Pharma Project and Portfolio Management 2024, held at Fairfield By Marriott in South Goa from January 17th to 19th, 2024, marked a significant milestone as of the best EBM event to date. Addressing challenging R&D project issues, the conference offered a comprehensive program to tackle industry pain points and enhance understanding of intellectual property (IP) and portfolio dynamics within the global pharma sector.
Kicking off with a keynote address from Ms. Guneet Kaur Hayer, Managing Director of Eminence Business Media, the conference set the stage for an exceptional three-day learning experience.

These experts delved into topics related to IP and portfolio challenges in the European landscape and litigations, incorporating an engaging group activity focused on solving the challenge of "choosing products from a portfolio."
The second day concentrated on the dual challenges and opportunities faced by project and portfolio management teams. Industry experts, including John Robert from Dr. Reddy’s Labs, Niteesh Srivastava from Macleods Pharma, Vishnu Prasad from Asana, and Sandeep Koul from Wockhardt, delivered insightful sessions. A Moot Court session facilitated by Dr. Bharati Nadkarni from Appropriate IP Services, Dr. Mandar Kodgule from IQGEN-X pharma, and Dr. Anshuman Ambike from Emcure Pharma, added an interesting dimension to the day.
