Future Meetings

Working in Consultancy

Venue: Sir Richard Morris building (School of Business & Economics), University of Loughborough
Speaker: GfK Market Access Team
Date: Wednesday, 29 October 2014 at 17:45 - 20:00

The market access team within GfK will be giving a brief presentation on market access consultancy in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industries and outlining the career opportunities that this offers.  Following the presentation refreshments will be provided and the team will be available to discuss any specific questions you may have.

Market Access Consultancy is very much like Operational Research (O.R.) – in that it involves applying appropriate analytical methods to help those who run organisations (or develop and sell products) make better decisions. It's a 'real world' discipline with a focus on understanding and identifying how to improve the complex systems and processes that underpin commercial success -  Like O.R. it is the 'science of better'.

GfK has  over 750 staff in more than 40 dedicated healthcare business units around the world with  70 expert market access consultants across Europe and the US providing clients from the pharmaceutical, medical device and diagnostics sectors with a broad range of pricing, reimbursement, market access and health economic support. The European market access team is based across two offices in the UK (Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire and London) and one office in Germany.

We are constantly looking for talented individuals with strong analytical capabilities to join our team, from people with no direct experience and an enthusiasm to learn (analyst level) up to experienced market access individuals with industry, consultancy or healthcare experience (consultant level and above).

The key areas of work include:

•             Pricing assessment and strategy

•             Payer research

•             Key Opinion Leader (KOL), physician and patient research

•             Health economic assessment and economic modelling

•             Reimbursement negotiation strategy

•             Core value dossiers and Health Technology Assessment (HTA) submission support

•             Development and testing of value propositions and messaging

•             Product lifecycle and portfolio strategy

•             Pricing, reimbursement and market access due diligence.


The GfK team, along with EMORG, look forward to welcoming you to this event.

If you would like any further information please contact Chris Teale who is both Chairman of EMORG and Vice President of GfK.

Energy system modelling in an uncertain world

Venue: Sir Richard Morris building (School of Business and Economics), Loughborough University
Speaker: Chris Heaton, Energy Technologies Institute
Date: Thursday, 13 November 2014 at 17:30 - 19:30

This talk will describe how energy system modelling can be used to understand the role of different technologies in the future UK energy system. In areas such as renewable electricity, big power plants, how we heat our homes and the types of cars we drive, the UK energy system will undergo significant changes in coming decades driven by a combination of economics, climate change targets and renewal of old infrastructure. A key feature of the problem is uncertainty – uncertainty in the cost and performance of technologies in the future, uncertainty in international fuel prices and uncertainty in the political context for national infrastructure. This talk will describe the modelling work done by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI), and what it tells us about how we can prepare for effective transition.

Refreshments will be served from 5:30pm, with the talk starting and 6pm.

If you have any questions or would would like more information please contact Nigel Monk, Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology, Email:
