Overview

Dear Colleagues,

PDA Europe is proud to announce the second edition of the PDA Europe Conference on Project Management in the Pharmaceutical Industry to be held in Munich, Germany on 05 September 2019.

The pharmaceutical industry has regulations and best-practice manuals for most of its production processes. Nonetheless, Project Management as a discipline is often excluded from the standards of performance defined for many other fields in the industry. It is apparent, the industry needs trained Project Managers in order to achieve success in the numerous processes, projects and developments.

PDA has recognized the need and offers this discipline its own space. One of the initiatives has been the novel conference on Project Management in the Pharmaceutical Industry in 2018.

If you are Project Manager working in the pharmaceutical industry you cannot miss this event. The conference has been designed by certified Project Managers with many years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry. We will discuss topics such as the advantages and challenges of different Project Management methods, tech transfer, risk management and best practices. In an interactive session, participants will develop approaches to challenges presented by experienced SMEs by the means of real-life case studies in small working groups. A session will be dedicated to Young Professionals presenting hot topics within our industry in short, concise presentations.

This event will offer excellent opportunities to expand your professional network with other experts in similar positions– Join us and deepen your knowledge of Project Management in our industry.

I look forward to meeting you in beautiful Munich!

Sincerely,

Peter Reichert,
Senior Principal Consultant at Zelect Quality IVS
