Our conference on Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices aims to highlight future technology and regulatory trends of all aspects related to application device technology. At the center of our Universe of Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices, however, is the patient.

Working in the pharmaceutical industry, regulatory agencies or industries supplying and enabling us to develop and to market these cutting-edge pharmaceutical products and delivery systems, we all are committed to serving patients both in developing countries as well as industrial nations. Safe and efficient application of complex biologics, whether to merely reduce fear of needle and pain, or to increase patient´s adherence, improve compliance, reduce waste, etc., are our core goals.

Smart devices and connected technologies will open up new horizons in our healthcare universe, providing patients with easier, safer and more effective solutions of drug administration. This an more key drivers for advancing the development of pre-filled syringes and injection devices will be presented in this intense and highly sophisticated event!

During the last decade, PDA’s Universe of Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices has become the must-attend meeting for everyone working in the field, and is now the world’s largest conference on this subject. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 14th edition of this event, to be held 7-8 November 2017 at the Austria Center in Vienna, Austria.

There is a continued process in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry to improve the application of injectables. Starting from primary packaging solutions to devices with increased functionalities new concepts are being developed to better serve the patient needs. Innovations cover a broad range like new materials, new devices, smart devices, special application systems for challenging formulations. Together with these innovations new manufacturing, handling and testing requirements need to be developed. Furthermore, regulatory demands are constantly changing as well, posing challenges to everyone involved in pharmaceutical science, technology and manufacturing of parenterals.

The Universe of Pre-filled Syringes and Injection Devices brings together industry and regulatory experts annually to share their experiences, new developments, regulatory considerations, trends and best practices. Do not miss the opportunity to gain access to and network with key decision makers from the pharmaceutical industry as well as suppliers and manufacturers.

The Austria Center in Vienna has proven to be the ideal location for PDA Europe's UPS, offering seemingly endless space and possibilities to create a very unique atmosphere, thereby contributing to the event's tremendous success in 2015. Austria's largest conference centre is located in the heart of the United Nations’ City Department of Vienna, only a few minutes from the center of one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. Join us there, the perfect place to explore and get immersed in the pre-filled syringes universe!
