LISAvienna event tip: Takeda R&D in Focus

LISAvienna is pleased to collaborate with Takeda and invites you to join the first "Takeda R&D in Focus" event on November 23rd, 2023, at ARIANA Event Hall in the 22. district. The location is significant, because it is right across the street from Takeda’s future R&D facility, which is currently under construction. Invited to join this event are innovators working on new solutions in the fields of sustainability, digital acceleration, and biotherapeutics processing tools. Takeda is looking forward to displaying its own capabilities in these areas and to interacting with innovators in an informal setting.

At carefully curated interactive stations, Takeda experts will present their efforts and projects in the three focus areas of the event – sustainability, digital acceleration, and biotherapeutics processing tools – and answer any questions from the participants. Among some of the elements featured will be Process Analytical Technology (PAT) tools, advanced processing, and modularization and automation of processes. Participants will also discover how Takeda employs AI and how its laboratories manage to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising research quality and safety.
