ISPE 2017 Europe Annual Conference in Barcelona, Spain 3 - 5 April 2017

Lead and Manage Future Operations

This year the ISPE 2017 Europe Annual Conference will focus on “Pharma Manufacturing 2025” and the way to achieve a modern, agile, and flexible production landscape.

Prominent questions will be explored and discussed during the conference.

What will the main regulatory trends be by 2025? How will the current technology platforms evolve?
What will the required skillsets and capabilities of the future workforce be? What does the facility of
the future look like and how will operations be managed? How can we guarantee safe supply: no
counterfeits, no drug shortages?

We will take a closer look at how the following industry trends will impact the pharmaceutical industry:

  • Change from small to large molecules – is Bio an over-emphasised trend?
  • Complete revision of Annex 1 – a global template?
  • Global harmonisation of regulation – or more barriers?
  • Industry 4.0 and complete digitalised operations and full automation – is our current product design
    fit for being manufactured automatically?
