European Microbiology Conference 2017

Invitation to the European Microbiology Conference 2017 with post-conference workshop on “Validation of Microbiological Methods”

Dear Colleague,

I would like to invite you to the European Microbiology Conference (EMC) and the Workshop on Validation of Microbiological Methods, organised by the ECA Academy in Prague, Czech Republic.

Since 9 years, the ECA has been organising the European Microbiology Conference in spring. The very good responses from attendants, speakers and exhibitors turned it to an annual event with presentations and workshops on current topics in pharmaceutical microbiology. In 2017, the EMC will be combined with a Post-Conference Workshop on “Validation of Microbiological Methods” with special focus on using statistical methods. The combination of these two events gives you an outstanding possibility to keep you up-to-date with the current developments and state of the art handling in microbiological quality control. Pharmacopoeial experts, representatives from pharmaceutical quality control and from testing laboratories will show you their experiences and what are the challenges and how they implemented an adequate microbiological Quality control in their companies.

The pharmaceutical microbiologist plays a key role in all aspects of development, manufacture and control of medicinal products, and their components. It is thus the aim of this conference and Workshop to equip the pharmaceutical microbiologist with practical and applicable knowledge and “know how”. In addition it will provide a forum for interesting and open discussions between presenters, regulators and your colleagues from the industry.

It would be a great pleasure for me if you joined us in Prague

Dr Sven M Deutschmann
Chairman of ECA's Pharmaceutical Microbiology Working Group
