2020 ISPE Continuous Manufacturing Workshop

A New Decade for Continuous Manufacturing: Current Landscape & Future Opportunities 

Interest in continuous manufacturing of pharmaceuticals has exploded in the past few years, fueled by the recent regulatory approvals of the first few drug products to be manufactured by this emerging technology. The 2020 ISPE Continuous Manufacturing Workshop will bring together industry practitioners, regulators, and academics to discuss the recent successes and remaining challenges for continuous manufacturing of small molecule drug substances and drug products. The conference will provide an in-depth view of the manufacturing technologies and regulatory approaches for successful development, implementation, and lifecycle management of continuous manufacturing both for new molecules and for batch to continuous conversions.
