Following the great success of the 1st European Conference on Pharmaceutics: Drug Delivery, which was held in Reims (France, in 2015), it is our great pleasure to announce the second congress of this new series of international meetings, which will be held in Krakow, Poland, on 3 to 4 April 2017. It will be dedicated to Novel Dosage Forms and Innovative Technologies.
The European Conferences on Pharmaceutics are held every two years (in March/April of the uneven years). They are jointly organized by the A.D.R.I.T.E.L.F. ("Associazione Docenti Ricercatori Italiani di Tecnologie e Legislazione Farmaceutiche"), APGI ("International Society of Drug Delivery Sciences and Technology") and APV ("International Association for Pharmaceutical Technology").
The aim is to help bridging the gap between fundamental academic research and industrial applications, offering the opportunity to initiate fruitful exchange and cooperation between university and industry.
The Conference will be a perfect occasion for young as well as for established scientists from academia and industry from all over the world to present their work, network, discuss newest scientific findings and to share their experience with colleagues on a broad range of topics related to Novel Dosage Forms and Innovative Technologies.
World-wide leading experts in the field will give plenary lectures and invited talks on hot topics. They will give overviews on the current state of the art in the respective domains and outlooks on future perspectives.
Special Hot Topics in Krakow will include:
- From bench to bedside - from technologies to clinical success
- Just married: SMART devices and SMART drugs
- Enabling technologies for poorly bioavailable drugs
- Novel delivery strategies for non-Lipinski molecules
- Novel strategies to overcome physiological barriers
In addition, latest research findings will be presented in the form of short talks, selected from submitted abstracts. Furthermore, poster presentations will give the opportunity to get an update on the most recent research in Pharmaceutics and to personally exchange with the authors.
An industrial exhibition will accompany the Conference and allow learning about the latest trends and newest products in the area of pharmaceutical ingredients, developing & processing equipment, analytical technologies, medicinal products, medical devices, contract manufacturing and many other fields.
All coffee and lunch breaks as well as the welcome reception will be included in the registration fees and be held in the industrial exhibition and poster presentation area in order to facilitate discussions between participants, exhibitors and presenters.
Krakow is world-wide famous for its historical old town, along with the Wawel Castle and the city's Kazimierz district. It is located on the banks of the Vistula River, and was for centuries the capital of Poland. Krakow has traditionally been one of the leading centers of Polish academic, cultural and artistic life. You can easily reach the city by car, train or plane (international airport).
