Drug composition, cross-contamination examination, online process monitoring, quality assurance, environmental controls, UDI identification, etc.: photonics applications are already playing major and crucial roles in all manufacturing processes of pharmaceutical industries. This meeting will address photonics technologies to the new challenges of pharma production sites revolutionizing functionality, quality, safety as well boosting volumes, speed and efficiency.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you”creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships
