In late 2021, we were introduced to Metavers: “Embedded Internet where you are experiencing, just don’t see it”. Those are the words of its creator, Mark Zuckerberg.
Considering the new proposal on the scene, it is our intention to raise some issues regarding the convergence of metavores and the pharmaceutical market associated with all the avenues leading to the technology affecting this segment. This new generation of platforms focuses on human, welfare and customer experience. Factors that meet the principles and values of the pharmaceutical sector.

Two) Encouraging initiatives to get closer to startups through the Open Innovation Program;
3) Observe these problems more and more to understand the “pain” and possible solutions to their problems, in order to get closer to the challenges and desires of its customers. Metavers offers a number of technologies that can help, such as virtual reality, asset tokenization, BlockchainPlatform for immersive healthcare experience and many more.
