heal.abstract The Greek (para)pharmaceutical supply chain has lately been worried about forthcoming changes in the legislation. Moreover, big international production companies are ready to ""intrude"" in the market by the moment that the changes will get into force. Greek production companies, mainly SMEs, do not have an option other than developing defensive strategies in order to avoid great losses. These defensive strategies have been identified as electronic alliances among the companies threatened by the advent of international big firms. However, electronic alliances cannot be easily formed and failing to efficiently establish an electronic alliance may lead to even greater problems than those which the alliance is supposed to solve. The paper describes the para-pharmaceutical supply chain and offers a research on the threats and opportunities that may affect the proposed e-alliance model. The main result is the list of the aforementioned risks that should be taken into account during the development of an electronic alliance. The Greek para-pharmaceutical industry was selected as a case study since, despite potential opportunities, no major penetration of e-business has been observed in that sector. en
