Dear Colleagues,

We are proud to present the inaugural conference 2019 PDA Europe BioManufacturing, 3-4 September 2019 in Munich/Germany.

Over the past 40 years, biopharmaceutical products have become increasingly important medicinal tools for human and animal healthcare. Recognizing the critical role that manufacturing plays in enabling pharmaceutical innovation and the important synergies connecting different product platforms, PDA Europe will be introducing its inaugural Bio-Manufacturing Conference in Munich/Germany. The conference will provide a forum to present innovative approaches and discuss hot topics related to product, process and analytics spanning a variety of biopharmaceutical product classes.

Experts from industry, academia and regulatory agencies are warmly welcomed to attend this unique event and join the exchange and the abundant networking opportunities. On behalf of PDA Europe and the Scientific Program Planning Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Munich!
