An encounter with Cortona is an encounter with art, history and spirituality. This location was chosen for its retreat style setting to encourage more in depth discussions between managers, executives and leaders in the industry as well as internationally recognized research institutions.
Involvement by government regulatory agencies provides opportunities for interaction regarding advances in technology and improved Regulatory Harmonization between the U.S. and Europe. The conference was designed for management teams within the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, and related industries. Numerous opportunities are provided during the conference for pharmaceutical management to successfully review progress in the field, hear case studies & share resources on improving manufacturing control and process optimization.
Cortona is very accessible by train from Rome, Florence, Milan, and other major cities with international airports.
