Dear Colleagues,

The EUPFI is delighted to announce its 13th annual (virtual) scientific conference and excited to bring you some of the interesting presentations and sessions you were looking forward to.

EuPFI (European Paediatric Formulation Initiative) annual conferences are an intellectual feast bringing together senior and pioneering scientists from academia and the pharmaceutical industry together with young researchers, students and regulators to share information about current research and to discuss the latest advancements and challenges facing the evolving field of paediatric medicines.

In its journey of successfully navigating the road on its mission to developing better and safe medicines for children, #EuPFI 2021 (virtual) will provide a further unique opportunity to advance knowledge and understanding in the areas where the needs of adult and paediatric patients overlap, where they differ and also area of diseases that occur mainly in children. A dialogue on the respective therapeutic landscapes, identifying most promising drug developments and defining success criteria and milestones in the development processes is of great importance and will be theme of #EuPFI 2021

About EuPFI

European Paediatric Formulation initiative (EuPFI) is a consortium of members working in a pre-competitive way on paediatric drug formulations. It was founded in 2007 with the aim of raising awareness of paediatric formulation issues. Members are from academia, hospital pharmacies and the pharmaceutical industry (innovators, generics, CRO’s, specials and excipient manufacturers).

The main objective of the EuPFI is to help resolve scientific, regulatory and technological issues associated with paediatric formulation development by writing reflection papers, organising conferences, developing knowledge repositories and promoting dialogue through their website.
