Collaboration, Value, and Risk: Vital ingredients for healthcare innovation

Posted by
Bianca Melzer, Global Clinical Development

Innovation is at the core of what we do at UCB, and we believe that it should involve every single member of a team. Collaboration, transparency, and open dialogue with colleagues is key, and we have found that this approach allows for challenge, free flowing of new ideas and creative ideas. UCB's success in driving innovation is a testament to the power of teamwork and the value of asking new questions and challenging assumptions regularly.

I have found that the positive working environment at UCB helps foster innovation in the workplace, especially when it comes to working in teams. When team members feel comfortable and supported, they are more likely to share their ideas and perspectives openly. From my experiences at UCB, collaboration, communication, and trust are critical components of an innovative team environment.

Crucially, we recognize that innovation goes beyond just discovering new medicines. It is also about delivering these medicines effectively to the patients who need them. To achieve this, all UCB colleagues are committed to regularly asking new questions and testing our understanding, allowing us to continuously improve and make a real impact on patients' lives. This approach allows us to continuously improve our work and make a difference in the lives of patients, ensuring that we are better equipped to meet the needs of patients and drive innovation in the pharmaceutical industry.

However, this approach is not without its risks. UCB continuously invests in research and development, pushing the boundaries of what is possible. While this process can be challenging my team has found that it can lead to significant rewards in the form of new discoveries and breakthroughs. It is this willingness to take risks that has enabled UCB to stay at the forefront of innovation in our industry.
