In 2004, and for the first time, the three European associations ADRITELF, APGI and SEFIG have joined their forces to co-organize in Sevilla (Spain) an International Conference on Drug Delivery and Pharmaceutical Technology.

To highlight the European character of this international event, we have invited EUFEPS and FIP to hold this meeting under their auspices.

This meeting will provide the opportunity to participate at a major event in the field of Pharmaceutical Technology and Drug Delivery Sciences and encounter scientists from all over the world. This event is also the unique opportunity to celebrate the 40th anniversary of APGI. You will be delighted by the charm of Sevilla, with its palaces, its Cathedral and the Girardella and the unforgettable charms of this gorgeous Andalusian city.

Our three associations are looking forward to welcoming you in Sevilla.
