BioBriefing – Strengthening Sovereign Capabilities: Advanced Manufacturing for Australian BioPharma

March 16, 2021 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm Melbourne, Victoria

During the national response to the pandemic, Australia has shown decisiveness and ingenuity in leveraging its existing base of capabilities. Over this time, gaps and weaknesses inherent in our ecosystem have also come to light. We are now faced with a genuine opportunity to strengthen Australia’s Sovereign capabilities for BioPharma by leveraging and building on our existing base, raising awareness of our weaknesses and harnessing existing opportunities to ensure we are prepared for the future. The driving question should look beyond what we are missing today, but what is needed for the future to ensure Australia is leading the way. By doing so, we can boost capabilities in product development, clinical trials and scaled manufacturing, reduce our exposure to global supply chain challenges and strengthen our biosecurity. The end result is an increased economic value add of the health industry to the Victorian and broader Australian economies. This BioBriefing will shine a light on advanced manufacturing for the BioPharmaceutical sector in Australia.
