European Microbiology Conference 2020

European Microbiology Conference

Invitation to the European Microbiology Conference 2020 with pre-conference workshop

Dear Colleague,

I cordially invite you to the European Microbiology Conference (EMC) and the Workshop on Alternative/Rapid Microbiological Methods 2020 of the ECA Academy in Barcelona, Spain.

The conference has been taking place for 12 years now. The positive feedback of the participants and speakers made the EMC an annual event which informs about current developments and trends in pharmaceutical microbiology with lectures and workshops. In 2020, EMC will be combined with a pre-conference workshop on the validation of alternative microbiological methods, focusing on statistical approaches for the validation.

These two events will provide you with an excellent opportunity to keep abreast of the latest developments and the state of the art in science and technology in microbiological quality control. Pharmacopoeia experts, pharmaceutical quality control representatives and contract laboratories will share their experiences on what the current challenges and achievements are and how they have ultimately implemented appropriate microbiological quality control concepts in their companies. The aim of this conference and workshop is therefore to provide the pharmaceutical microbiologist with practical and applicable knowledge and „know-how“. It also provides a forum for interesting and open discussions between speakers, regulators and your industry colleagues.    

It would be a great pleasure for me if you would join us in Barcelona.

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