ETERNAL at one year old

ETERNAL at one year old

The ETERNAL project just celebrated its first birthday. During that time the project partners have established strong and effective reporting structures and working relationships to deliver on an ambitious programme bringing together extensive industrial case studies scaling up sustainable, green pharmaceutical manufacturing processes with new insight into the environmental and ecotoxicological impacts of drug manufacture and consumption, to better understand how the one can maximally improve the other. Project coordinator Pablo Ferrer Pérez reflects on some of the significant first steps taken during this time and the foundations that have been laid for future success.

Prioritising change in the pharma value chain

Prioritising change in the pharma value chain

ETERNAL is actively seeking to reach out to people working right across the pharmaceutical value chain from drug development and design, through manufacture, distribution, healthcare, disposal and public utilities to understand where we can prioritise action promoting change for sustainable healthcare. You can help by sharing your views in our short stakeholder survey.

Thinking about green innovation? Better think about sustainability

Thinking about green innovation? Better think about sustainability

As part of the comprehensive industrial cocreation process through which ETERNAL’s case studies are being steered, Britest is developing a methodology which variously helps innovators to find the most sustainable process route when faced with multiple possibilities, to identify and challenge environmental impacts, and to develop cost effective carbon footprint reduction plans across their products’ value chain.

Early press coverage for ETERNAL

Early press coverage for ETERNAL

The recent launch of the ETERNAL project has generated some early press interest in our new four-year contribution to the sustainable development of pharmaceutical manufacture, use and disposal, by using and promoting full life cycle approaches covering design, manufacture, use, and disposal.

Project Launch in Valencia

Project Launch in Valencia

The ETERNAL project held a successful kick-off meeting in Valencia, Spain on 27th and 28th September. This new four-year EC Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Action will contribute to sustainable development of pharmaceutical manufacture, use and disposal, by using and promoting full life cycle approaches covering design, manufacture, usage, and disposal, assessing the environmental risks of not only active pharmaceutical ingredients and residues or metabolites, but other chemicals and by-products of the production process. In other words, safe and sustainable pharmaceutical lifecycles by design.
