Program Highlights

PDA is proud to announce the first Interest Group Meeting Supply Chain Management!

As usual for the open forum design of PDA’s Interest Groups Meetings, members are offered the possibility to discuss around their specific topic of interest in a familiar atmosphere.

This year’s focus topic will be: Are You Ready for the Future of Medicine?

Short presentations covering additional information fitting the scope of the Interest Group are welcome. Please contact Teresa Schubach to submit your topic proposal.


Suppliers of raw and manufactured materials to biotech and pharmaceutical companies, as well as drug manufacturers, are challenged with an increasing complexity of the material supply chain.  This has in turn led to increasing difficulty in ensuring quality supply of materials and components, excipients, and APIs.  Furthermore, the integrity of the supply chain is being challenged by increasing sub-standard manufacturing, inadequate business and process controls, as well as international counterfeiting practices.

The Supply Chain Management Interest Group offers its members the opportunity to influence the suppliers of the pharmaceutical and biotech industry to develop requirements that meet the needs of the industry in the areas of material quality, continuous improvement efforts, supply chain security, and supplier/customer business partnerships.  Existing information is gathered from PDA members, suppliers, other industry groups, and drug manufacturers to document and develop best practices approach for suppliers to meet customer requirements globally.

Join us in the beautiful city of Lisbon/Portugal and take advantage of the open forum design approach offered by this focused face-to-face meeting. Hear presentations from leading experts and interact and discuss your experiences with colleagues in an open atmosphere. Share your opinions and enlarge your knowledge in interactive discussions. Receive the latest information about the status of the ongoing activities of the Interest Group Supply Chain Management.
