5th EuPFI Conference Barcelona

About the conference


The two-day conference was entirely dedicated to bringing together the latest advances, challenges and opportunities for developing medicinal products and medicinal devices for paediatric use.

This year we introduce preconference workshops focussing on ‘Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacology’ and ‘Paediatric Regulatory Framework’. These preconference workshops are designed to maximise your learning experience by a specialist in the topic area.

Moving on to the plenary sessions with the focus on Paediatric Biopharmaceutics provided the latest trends, learn how Japanese children take their medicines in relation to cultural differences and the way in which Pharma has responded, a session on patient public engagement and ‘case studies/PIPs lessons learned’. An Innovation Show Case gave an opportunity for companies to present less traditional yet relevant technologies for children medicines.  

The EuPFI thematic sessions covering the five work streams of EuPFI (taste masking and testing, excipients, age appropriateness of formulations, extemporaneous formulations and administration devices) provided an overview of the current practices and challenges in the aforementioned areas, to illustrate specific remedies utilized by paediatric drug development teams to overcome hurdles. The vibrant poster session with many selected by peer review for oral presentation.  

The conference enabled participants to present, discuss breakthroughs and expand their knowledge on recent developments and challenges in the area of paediatric medicines and administration devices, from academia, industry, hospitals, and regulatory authorities. It brought together international leaders in the fields of paediatric formulation development to discuss emerging topics in these areas.

We invite you to note the dates of 6th EuPFI conference in your diary and begin planning your participation, as well as your abstract submissions.
