Interested in improving your knowledge about pharmaceutical supply chain management (SCM)? The i+academy has an excellent opportunity for you. In 2016, over 20 students will have the chance to follow the i+academy course of their choice, without having to pay the fee of 450€.
At i+solutions, we believe in reducing the stock outs of essential medicines, so that treatment is always available for those that need them. In many countries, the supply chain of medicines is dysfunctional due to a lack of trained personnel. Human resources are, therefore, the corner stone for a well-functioning supply chain.
i+solutions has been offering trainings about all aspects of the supply chain since 2005. In 2013, we have launched the i+academy, an online platform so that students can learn about SCM in the comfort of their home -- thus reducing the fee from 2000€ (class course in Europe) to 450€. However, 450€ is still a big amount for a lot of people living in low and middle income countries. That is why we are lauching a scholarship programme. We aim to offer the opportunity to study SCM to more and more people.
