COST Action CA15105 (Medicines Shortages) Lisbon Training School

A Training School on “Medicines Shortages” (COST Action CA15105) addressing Pharmaceutical Supply Chains (SC) is being organized by the Instituto Politécnico de Portalegre (IPP). The programme stakeholder and local organiser is Prof. Joao Luis Miranda. Teachers, researchers, MSc/PhD students and practitioners will meet at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisboa, Portugal, between the 26th and 28th of April 2017, to discuss topics relevant to the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain within the COST Action “Medicines Shortages” (CA15105), European Medicines Shortages Research Network – addressing supply problems to patients.

The program consists of a seminar that is open to the general public on the first day. The seminar will introduce the Action, its main goals, methodology and workplan; the participants in the seminar will also gain a complete overview of the Training School, since the main topics of the technical sessions in the following days will also be presented.

Attendance of all three days of the school is strongly recommended for those participants interested in Medicines Shortages and in the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain. However, attending either the seminar, the workshop, or only one of the technical sessions is possible upon registration.

A Registration Form is available online. The deadline for registration was originally the 26th February, but has now been extended to Sunday 5th March.

Additional information about the Speakers, Program or other topics of interest is available on the event website or by contacting the Portuguese Coordinator directly.
