A fit-for-purpose, scalable operational structure is the cornerstone of any biopharma company as it progresses from R&D to commercial enterprise.The European market is second only to the US in terms of providing access to patients and generating value for biopharma ventures. The ecosystem is complex, but with the right strategy and clear understanding of key operational considerations, an EU plan is achievable alone or in partnership with established companies.
