IFPAC® Summit with INDUNIV
October 27-28, 2020
Marriott Isla Verde Beach Resort in Carolina, Puerto Rico
ADVANCED MANUFACTURING SCIENCE
Manufacturing Quality for the Biopharmaceutical/Pharmaceutical Industries
Welcome Letter from the Scientific Board
IFPAC and INDUNIV have planned another premier event for professionals in the pharmaceutical sciences and biopharmaceuticals. Since the PAT initiative in 2004, we have been discussing the potential for Process Analytical Technology...PAT to provide process knowledge. The challenge now is: how do we couple that process knowledge with information systems? How do we make it possible for scientists that thoroughly understand a process to easily see the process data from a plant anywhere in the world? How do information systems help that process knowledge to become a competitive advantage? Companies that have used PAT have massive data bases by now; the next step is to use this knowledge. During the annual event, we will present innovative, strategic, achievable, and sustainable solutions.
IFPAC-2020 Annual Summit, covering the latest initiatives in Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT), is to be held on October 27-28, 2020, at the Marriott Courtyard, Isla Verde Beach Resort in Carolina, Puerto Rico, conveniently located just 10 miles east of downtown San Juan, and five minutes from the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport.
Puerto Rico has a number of leading PAT/QbD applications in the Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries and this event keeps the conversation active on challenges and solutions. This conference will take you beyond the basic principles of PAT & QbD serving not only those that are starting to work in this area, but those that are already seasoned and familiar to these important FDA and industry initiatives. Each day will include working sessions and numerous discussion opportunities. We will have plenty of new information from companies that are already involved in PAT and QbD, and from many talented students.
Our conference program is based on a quadrant approach, where each quadrant of the IFPAC Summer Summit conference will have a specific topic and set of deliverables.
- Quadrant I: Continuous Manufacturing Progress and Emerging Technologies
- Quadrant II: PAT & Analytics
- Quadrant III: Implementation of Biologics - Cell Therapies & SUS (Single Use Systems)
- Quadrant IV: Data Integrity and Pharma 4.0
We believe that we have organized a unique conference with a holistic approach to Continuous Manufacturing, Process Analytical Technology, overall Process Understanding & Control and Data Management.
Please join us at the Isla Verde Beach Resort on October 27-28, 2020 for this conference!
