REMEDIES: Reconfiguring the UK's pharmaceutical supply chain
CIM led the research in ReMediES (RE-configuring Medicines End-to-end Supply), a £22 million UK initiative to reshape the sector’s supply chains. The project, headed up by GlaxoSmithKline, brought together other leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, their supply chain partners and researchers along with other stakeholders such as regulators, knowledge transfer networks and healthcare providers.
