The CPHI Pharma Awards, now in its 20th year, is accepting entries for its 2023 edition, with a focus on celebrating global innovators and social leaders who are transforming the pharmaceutical industry. This year, the awards program features 12 categories, including three new ones that reflect the industry’s push for innovation, sustainability, and philanthropic initiatives.

As the world continues to face unprecedented health challenges, pharmaceutical companies have stepped up their game to address these issues through accelerated innovation and social responsibility initiatives. This year’s CPHI Pharma Awards aim to recognize and honor companies and individuals who are making a difference in the industry and beyond. Categories include Accelerating Innovation, API Development & Innovation, Manufacturing Excellence, and Supply Chain Excellence, among others.

The new Start-up Initiative award specifically highlights exhibitors from the start-up zone, where the biggest innovations often come from the smallest companies. The Heart of Pharma award recognizes those who have made significant contributions to improving patient engagement, corporate social responsibility, healthcare accessibility, and equity. The winners will be announced at CPHI Barcelona, the largest global event for the pharmaceutical industry. Entries close on May 15, 2023.

Overall, the CPHI Pharma Awards represent a unique opportunity for global innovators, scientists, entrepreneurs, and social leaders to be recognized for their outstanding achievements in improving methods, processes, and supply-side efficiencies, and making a real-world impact on improving patient outcomes and experiences.
