Are you choosing the right CDMO for your project?

The newest edition of our webinar series will explore the various criteria to consider when starting the selection process of a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO)! Join our 25 November session to learn everything you need to know about CDMO selection with two highly-qualified experts from company Naobios, Eric LE FORESTIER (CEO) and Luís RAIADO (Head of Business Development). Naobios is a CDMO with extensive experience through diverse background in biopharma development and manufacturing.

Whenever you need to outsource a project, you want to be sure that you are making the right choice regarding your CDMO. Indeed, this will be a partnership for the whole lifetime of a project, which can be a bumpy road! In this webinar, we will go over the different aspects you will need to consider during the selection process of your CDMO.

Since this is a partnership, we will also bring you to the other side of the mirror and show you what is the point of view of the CDMO – and the expectations such organization may have regarding a project.

Through this presentation, we hope that you will be better prepared to start this new and exciting aventure – potentially with us!
