Welcome to the 4th Quality by Design Symposium, 15-16th March 2016

After three successful annual symposia since 2013 we are delighted to be hosting the Fourth Quality by Design Symposium on 15-16th March 2016. We planned this event to bring together academics, regulators and industrial experts to share academic research aligned to the QbD agenda as well as progress in ‘real life’ QbD implementation. The meeting will focus on Science and Risk based Approach: the Future of Pharmaceutical Development and Manufacture.

Attendees’ remarks from the 3rd symposium in March 2015:

  • “I gained a lot of insight into QbD…”
  • “Great presentations!”
  • “Perfect venue. Great topics…”
  • “The event (pre-symposium and symposium) was very well structured … The pre-symposium workshop was excellent regarding content and the interactive nature between industry, academia and subject matter experts…”
  • “All of the presentations were well delivered and relevant. This has been the case each year but for me the addition of the workshop was the aspect that really pulled it all together…”

Why Attend?

  • Our most recent symposium was attended by over 130 delegates (65% from industry)
  • Learn from senior leaders from industry about the opportunities to implement Quality by Design in your workplace
  • Network, build relationships and collaborative opportunities
