SThree’s consulting Belgium invest in your development

At SThree (a group of brands of which Real is part of), the development of the skills and knowledge of our consultants is very important. That’s the reason we constantly work with our senior/expert consultants to provide training to share their expert knowledge.

Recently Fabio Pagano delivered our first internal training in Bioprocess at our office in Brussels. Fabio joined Real as a Life Sciences consultant 2 years ago. Through Real he had the opportunity to work on a number of exciting projects at various (bio)pharmaceutical companies. Today Fabio has over 16 years of experience within the biopharmaceuticals industry, GMP regulated and project environment. The training he gave is part of his desire to be more involved in developing the consultancy part of the company and to not just work on client projects. Fabio is always willing to share his expertise with our other consultants and SThree is happy to give him that opportunity!


Importance of Biotechnology in Belgium

With more than 140 biotechnology companies in Belgium, the Belgian biotechnology companies accounted for 16% of Europe's turnover and almost 10% of R&D expenditure. The development of the biotechnology sector in Belgium has created several biotechnology clusters comprising universities, companies and organisations active in the biotechnology industry. (Source :

During this training we covered different subjects within life sciences and biotechnology:

  • The main differences between chemical and biological API
  • Biological drugs overview
  • Bioprocess consideration
  • Bioprocess industrial examples
  • Biomanufacturing plants

In addition to the great learnings and insights our consultants took away from the training it was also a good opportunity to develop their network.
