Emerging Leaders

Emerging Leaders at the ISPE Emerging Leaders Pharma 4.0 Hackathon in December 2022, Takeda Austria

Share knowledge, network and promote your career.

The Emerging Leaders are a working group of motivated young professionals who want to further develop their understanding of the pharmaceutical industry and seek contact with other Emerging Leaders through versatile networking opportunities. Through global cooperation, exclusive conferences and workshops for young professionals, networking events and regular meetings, the Emerging Leaders Community in the D/A/CH region has developed into a well-established working group with more than 150 members.

After the training follows the entry into the profession, the professional career.

ISPE defines entry-level professionals in their first 5 professional years after completing their education as Emerging Leaders.

“As an ISPE Emerging Leader, I have the opportunity to attend conferences and trainings to learn about pharmaceutical processes and guidance documents but most importantly this is also a good way to get to know people with years of experience in diverse fields. The ISPE website is also a really great source of information to stay aware of the main news in the fast-evolving world of pharma!”

Sanofi-Aventis Germany GmbH

“I have come to know ISPE not only as a network for exchanging the latest techniques and trends in the pharmaceutical industry, but also for networking with like-minded colleagues in the field. Especially the EL group strives to connect young people to share knowledge, experiences and ideas to shape their individual futures. I am excited to be part of this network.”

Roche Diagnostics GmbH

“I got to know ISPE as part of a university group during my master’s degree in chemical engineering/process technology. Towards the end of my studies, I became more and more interested in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. Furthermore, I wanted to do more besides my studies, so the opportunity to join the university group of ISPE at KIT came in handy.

ISPE allowed me to meet many new people in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries while accumulating more industry-related knowledge. At the same time, I was able to play an active role in offering an attractive and exciting program to the members of the University Group and Emerging Leaders and Students.

ISPE not only helped me get started in my career through the many industry-related experiences, but I was also able to meet many new exciting people in the pharmaceutical and biotech environment.”
