This global team of engineers and technical experts, known as Global Manufacturing and Supply (GMS), are focused on the patient at the end of the supply chain, and know just how vitally important it is to get it right.
But we’re also thinking about tomorrow, and have embarked on an ambitious long term strategy, across both our GMS and Research & Development (R&D) organisation, to explore what the medicines and consumer healthcare products of the future might look like, and how we can make them.
The Digitisation Lab
In a building in Stevenage, UK, alongside one of our global R&D hubs, we have a team dedicated to seeking, developing and industrialising new manufacturing technologies. We’re collaborating with leading tech companies, both those familiar with pharmaceuticals and those from un-related industries, such as the gaming industry, to give us new insights into how we can bring together science, technology and business to find smarter ways to work. This team includes everyone from automation engineers to data scientists, all aiming to create new data-led approaches and optimise the use of state of the art digital technology across R&D and GMS. The digitisation lab is at the heart of this thinking; a collaborative workspace where we can road-test new technologies in order to really understand new technologies and accelerate the use of them across GSK.
