The Biotech Quality Group advises Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals and MedTech european clients in their Quality Assurance strategy and daily organisation.
BQG founders have been involved over the last ten years in the Life Science industry, at various responsibilities in Quality Assurance, Regulatory Compliance, Engineering and Business excellence.
They witnessed the paradigm shift, which is heavily impacting the industry since early 2000. Drop on drug prices, ever increasing pressure of regulatory bodies combined with the boom of generic products, have signed the end of the so-called « blockbuster » model.
New models are emerging which have to rapidly mix new drug discovery – biotechnology being the engine for innovation – with the flexibility to reduce cost and shortening time-to-market. To face such a demanding challenge, Life science organizations, driven by both Management and Quality systems, are forced to adapt accordingly.
