Innovation in Europe

Our vision is to be a top innovator for advanced and sustainable patient-centric healthcare, powered by our unique strength in science and technology and the alliance with Roche.

As the European hub of Chugai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., we support the TOP I 2030 strategy by enabling our internal transformation and sourcing external partners, to fuel innovation for advanced and sustainable patient-centric healthcare.

We seek to streamline internal processes to enable business efficiencies and realisation of our teams’ ideas, as well as scout and co-develop innovative solutions for patients in our focus therapy areas. We also have a unique role to play for our colleagues in Japan, acting as a lens into the European innovation ecosystem through which we can identify technologies that have the potential to solve Chugai Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. challenges, and facilitate innovative Global partnerships.

Our European Innovation Objectives

Identify and work with external partners, including start-ups and investors, to deliver digital, innovative solutions that address European unmet needs in our focus areas.
Act as a partner and open innovation hub for our colleagues in Japan, and all of the Chugai Group, evaluating and testing new solutions that support the Global business.
Drive an internal innovation mindset across Europe and create a lean, scalable framework to enable transformation and delivery of internal innovation at pace.

Our Innovation Network

As an active member of the European innovation ecosystem, we have built a strong network of partners and tools across the region, including companies dedicated to scouting, investment, and health technology development. We work with this network to drive our regional innovation initiatives, as well as to build collaborative opportunities with our colleagues in Japan.
