ISPE Italy Affiliate was founded in Milan in 1992. At present it has about 450 members. The Italy Affiliate is represented by a board of 10 people coming from pharmaceutical industries and from suppliers to healthcare manufacturers. The board, elected every two years, has the mission to diffuse pharmaceutical knowledge by organizing events and congresses to discuss the most common issues in the pharmaceutical world.
ISPE Italy also organizes a yearly special event called "ISPE Night" (usually before Christmas) where all Members have the opportunity of sharing their experience during a pleasant dinner.
