The most important drug discovery event of the year? Save the date!

It’s with great excitement that we announce the return of ELRIG’s FREE TO ATTEND Drug Discovery 2023 (DD 2023); Europe’s leading event for the drug discovery community!

We’re expecting more than of you to pack out Liverpool’s ACC Exhibition Centre from 18-19 October, where we’ll deliver a truly unmissable knowledge-sharing and career-boosting conference.

This year, DD 2023 focuses on the sheer power of diversity — the lifeblood of the life sciences innovation ecosystem — highlighting its role in propelling the sector forward.

So, what can you expect from the event? Why should you stop what you’re doing right now and get this one in your calendar?

The latest world-class science, from a diversity of leading thinkers

In true ELRIG fashion, we’ve put together an unparalleled series of 8 action-packed tracks to keep you at the forefront of life sciences knowledge — all from some of the world’s leading thinkers and institutions ).

Tracks will cover a variety of fascinating themes:

Whether you’re involved in early drug discovery research or translating your promising therapy to the clinic, you’ll be sure to discover something that can help you carve a smoother path to success at this year’s event!

Hands-on access to the latest path-shaping technologies

And the innovation and diversity doesn’t stop there.

More than 150 suppliers and service providers will flood the exhibition floor, showcasing the latest tools and instruments that could be just what you need to overcome your stickiest drug discovery challenges.

Don’t miss your chance to be among the first in the world to get acquainted with the next generation of tools and techniques that could propel your research forward, several companies will be launching new products.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get the chance to see some of this tech in action, with our Tech Theatre — with an exciting programme for DD 2023! Learn all about implementing robotics and automation in drug discovery, as well as practical ways in which your lab can become more sustainable.

Accessible and inclusive: removing barriers to the best science
