It is with great pleasure and privilege that European Paediatric Formulation Initiative invites you to the 7th annual conference on “Formulating Better medicines for Children”, which will be held in Antwerp, Belgium, September 16th -17th 2015 in partnership with APV (International Association of Pharmaceutical Technology).
The steady growth in importance of paediatric drug development has made it our mission to share expertise and interactive discussion between industry, academia, clinical and regulatory professionals to promote and facilitate preparation of better & safe medicines for children. This meeting is now in its 7th and offers a unique opportunity for paediatric formulation specialists to exchange and present recent accomplishments as well as discuss remaining challenges for the future with a vision of better medicines for children. To achieve this goal, the programme for this conference is participant driven and is typically designed around the challenges faced in developing paediatric medicines, which in turn are also the workstreams that comprise the EuPFI activity.
It will be the remit of a joint dialogue to move forward in our common grasping of the health challenges of today and tomorrow in assessing what can be done for the children. This needs to include a constant challenge of formulation, biopharm and other barriers that paediatric research still encounters everyday.
We continue to have a vibrant poster session with many selected by peer review for oral presentation. Also an Innovation show case that will give an opportunity for companies to present less traditional yet relevant technologies for children medicines. We encourage you to explore the EuPFI website which contains all the information you need to submit your abstracts and express interests in show case.
Detailed information for companies interested in having a presence at this conference can be found in the flyer.
We invite you to note the dates of 7th EuPFI conference in your diary and begin planning your participation, as well as your abstract submissions. You are very welcome to explore our conference website for further information.
Dont miss this unique opportunity! We are looking forward to welcoming you in Antwerp, a dynamic city, offering a perfect mix of history and present-day modern life
