During her stay, discussions revolved around potential research projects and collaborative opportunities. Additionally, there were fruitful exchanges regarding the requirements for pharmaceuticals and other products, considering both domestic and international standards. Of particular interest were the variations in requirements for written and digital information provided by pharmacies and displayed on the outer packaging or on pharmacy produced labels. The potential of pharmacy labels as adherence-enhancing technology was discussed with pharmacist and managing director Mr. Ørjan Leiknes Apeland at “Ås produksjonslab”- a local pharmaceutical company specializing in the production of liquid, non-sterile medications and commercial products.

Furthermore, Dr. Trečiokienė had a productive meeting with Mr. Bjørn Toreid, the visionary founder and CEO of MedThings. This meeting delved into the realm of digital technologies, particularly focusing on the integration of the innovative smart pill dispenser, Mobili, in upcoming projects and clinical environments.
