On behalf of the PDA Italy Chapter, we would like to invite you to an opportunity, the International Year of Glass declared by the United Nations for 2022, PDA Italy proposes an event dedicated to Glass for pharmaceutical use involving the International Commission on Glass (ICG) and some of the leading experts in the field. Glass has long been the material of choice for the primary packaging of injectables, and there are many evolving aspects. The issue of sustainability is certainly one of the aspects on which all the players in the supply chain are called to discuss and the debate is open.
The event will take stock of the latest technological process innovations. Aimed at direct drug contact with glass, also dedicating space to regulatory innovations (TR43 PDA on glass defects).

The agenda will include a guided tour at the Stevanato Group plant dedicated to the production processes of primary glass packaging and the opportunity to visit the laboratories of the Experimental Glass Station. Finally, attendees will have the opportunity to share their experiences and challenges with experts in glass for pharmaceutical use.
