How can industry better support National Healthcare Systems


Quality by Design (QbD) is a science and risk-based approach to the development and manufacture of medicines and healthcare products that enable cost effective delivery of products over their lifecycle.

This event brings together leading industry experts, regulators and academics, to share best practice and research aligned to the QbD agenda, as well as to discuss progress in ‘real life’ QbD implementation.
