The Digital Capability Center New Jersey is a state-of-the-art learning facility which concentrates on the impact of digital enablement across cell & gene therapy related operations. It provides an immersive learning experience that simulates the journey to operational excellence — including observations of a simulated manufacturing process in its before-and-after state, digital use cases and plenaries on lean principles and enabling mindsets. Attendees will tour the facility and experience a selection of the digital use cases. Given the space availability at the center, the tour will be limited to the first 30 people to sign up. A registration form will be sent closer to the meeting date.
