1 Strengthened organizational model

In 2019, we progressed into a new phase of our strategic plan – the “Accelerate and Expand” phase. In this new phase, we face internal and external changes, such as preparing ourselves to bring new solutions from our pipeline to patients and adapting to technological advances in artificial intelligence, in a world that faces challenges from rising inequalities to climate change. Therefore, UCB continues evolving.

During the summer of 2019, we prepared our organization for the further implementation of our Patient Value Strategy. As a result, our organizational model now focusses on five Patient Value Solutions areas (PV Early Solutions, PV Development Solutions, PV Immunology Solutions, PV Neurology Solutions, PV Supply and Technology Solutions), and three support functions (PV Corporate Development and Finance, PV Legal and Risk, PV Talent and Company Reputation). UCB has a CEO office which consists of department reporting directly to the CEO including the Sustainability team and the Internal Audit team. This new organizational model supports collaboration, increased agility and seeks to achieve more efficiency in reaching our goals. It should increase our ability to embrace innovation and adapt quickly to an increasing complex and volatile world.
