Perspectives 2012: the future of chemical and pharmaceutical value creation.

Infraserv Höchst invited guests to attend PERSPECTIVES 2012, an event that it hosted at ACHEMA 2012. Its goal: to explore the future of chemical and pharmaceutical value creation in Germany. The German chemical and pharmaceutical industry is facing towering challenges, including two global megatrends: obtaining a reliable supply of utilities at internationally competitive rates, and addressing demographic change and the resultant growing shortage of highly skilled workers.

The highly regarded speakers at PERSPECTIVES 2012 outlined many opportunities and cutting-edge solutions to these issues. Moreover, they all agreed that Germany's chemical and pharmaceutical industry would remain internationally successful and competitive for a long time to come.
