Pharmaceutical companies often play a significant role within their local communities, from providing employment opportunities to supporting community projects with staff volunteering schemes.
Academic and educational support
A number of ABPI member companies’ staff are trained as STEM Ambassadors to reach out to local schools and colleges. These Ambassadors visit schools and provide insight into pharmaceutical science as well as how pharmaceutical companies work. Information on how to become an Ambassador and how to get involved in those programmes can be found on the Stemnet website at www.stemnet.org.uk.
