There are many times that companies are involved in the transfer of technology. These may be external, as in outsourced work or in-licensing, or internal as in the transfer from research and development to production or from analytical development to quality control.
Most companies have problems in making these transfers, either in terms of quality or in timelines and these problems range from minor annoyance to complete failure.
The ideal Technology Transfer should be seamless-that is there should be zero problems but this almost never happens-however these problems can be minimal if the process is planned from the beginning rather than just being allowed to happen.
This course will show why problems occur and how they can be avoided if the correct systems are put in place at the right time.
It will look at how to plan for technology transfer and will look at both technical and project management techniques which will reduce the difficulties. It will deal with the difficulties of communicating between the parties involved and discuss how to set up a technology transfer group and to create a technology transfer charter or protocol.
Subjects that will be considered include Technology Transfer Management, Quality by Design, Failure Mode and Effect Analysis and Root Cause Analysis.
The course will be illustrated with many real examples from areas of pilot and scale up of chemical synthesis, transfer of finished dosage forms from Pharmaceutical Development to Production and the transfer and validation of analytical methods.
