Adamed Group - the panelist of Innovative Europe
Being innovative in the Pharma industry was the main topic of the presentation delivered by Katarzyna Dubno, Director of External Relations and Health Economics Department at Adamed group during the 13th All-Poland conference ‘A Polish woman in Europe’.
The event is organized by the Journalists’ Health Association and its aim is to provide journalists from all over Poland with reliable, content-related knowledge and encourage them to discuss diverse topics connected with health in a broad sense. The conference, which was held on 26 and 29 September 2014, attracted numerous press-, radio- and TV-journalists.
„According to the OECD classification, the pharmaceutical industry belongs to the top 3 most innovative economy sectors and tops the ranks of R&D investments. The innovation can be understood as a new product with a newly patented molecule, an upgraded product meaning a new method of administration, formulation or ingredients, as well as an improved therapeutic method (eg. route of administration) and modified process (eg. method of synthesis)” – explained Katarzyna Dubno. „The Adamed Group is a company in which innovative solutions are applied not only in the area of research and development or production, but also in Human Resources, Sales and Marketing. Over the last 5 years Adamed Group has invested over 200 mln zl in the area of research and development.” –Katarzyna concluded.
The journalists were also very enthusiastic about a movie in which Jerzy Pieczykolan, the Head of R&D Department at Adamed Group explained the current status of research projects, with flagship ONCO 3-CLA which aim is to obtain a molecule differentiating diseased cells from those healthy ones. It will be applied especially in the therapy of liver, pancreas and digestive system cancer.
The lectures and talks within the ‘Polish woman in Europe’ conference were held in Szczecin and Świnoujście as well as on a ferry to Ystad, from where the journalists headed to Copenhagen to participate in a visit at the Regional Office of World Health Organization.
