Innovations Issue 2022

PM360 Innovations Issue

For over a decade the PM360 Innovations Issue—published every December—has served as the industry’s guide to the latest and biggest innovations across marketing, commercialization, R&D, and more. Within the past couple of years alone we have seen some of the greatest advancements this industry has ever had to make as a result of the pandemic. But why slow down now?

We want to know who is thinking even bigger. We want innovations in any facet of the industry that are even more awe-inducing. Even better at making things easier for patients, providers, payers, or anyone else within healthcare. Even more astonishing in how they are pushing the industry to new heights or improving how it operates. Even more innovative than anything we have seen in the past.

If your company is doing something at the cutting-edge in any aspect within life sciences or marketing then be sure to submit it for consideration in our industry’s preeminent guide to innovation.

Early Deadline: September 28 at 11:59 PM EST

Final Deadline: October 21 (anything after 9/28 is subject to a $180 late fee)

PM360 is looking for submission in the following categories:

Companies: Any company is eligible to enter, but they must detail what they have done over the past year that makes them truly innovative.

Startups: We define a startup as a company that has been established within the past 5 years. If your company is older than 5 years, please enter in the Company category.

Divisions: Any offshoot or part of a company that was developed within the last 16 months to solve a particular problem or challenge the industry is facing.

Products: This can include any new software, apps, drug delivery devices, or anything else designed within the last year to help advance the life sciences industry or help those within the industry to be more successful.

Submission Criteria: Submissions can be entered into multiple categories by just checking multiple boxes on the entry form. Please note that entering submissions multiple times will not increase your chances of being selected.

Each submission should include a submission statement prepared as a Word doc (preferred) or a PDF and attached to the online form. There is no maximum length, but it should be at least 300 words. Each submission, should address the following questions:

  • What makes your company, division, product, service, or strategy innovative?
  • How recent is your innovation? (i.e., What did your company do this year? When was your startup founded? How long has your product or service been on the market?)
  • How is your innovation improving or how will it improve the industry?
  • What challenges did you face in creating something innovative and how did you overcome them?
  • Do you have any stats that demonstrate how effective your innovation has been to this point?

You can also submit supplementary materials including visual materials that can further illustrate your innovation and how it works. All images should be at least 1,000 x 1,200 pixels and 300 dpi, images may be larger and can be either vertical or horizontal. Accepted file types include: pdf, jpg, tiff, png, and ppt.
