Scientific Collaboration
Agreement with SFSTP and Éditions de Santé
SFSTP (Société Française des Sciences et Techniques Pharmaceutiques) is a French association dedicated to the advancement of pharmaceutical sciences and techniques by bringing together the knowledge and energies of different players in the pharmaceutical industry and academia. The Society’s trademark publication, STP Pharma Pratiques, is a bimonthly, bilingual (English and French) journal of industrial pharmacy published by Éditions de Santé. The articles in the journal deal with the technical, industrial and regulatory aspects related to the development, production, control and quality assurance of health, cosmetics and veterinary products, and are sourced mainly from the working commissions of the SFSTP, which are composed of multidisciplinary actors (industrialists, suppliers, supervisory authorities and academics) from various backgrounds (pharmaceutical, biotechnology, cosmetics, veterinary and regulatory). As a result of the efforts of the French members of EIPG, the Conseil National de l’Ordre des Pharmaciens, and in particular the EIPG Immediate Past President Jean-Pierre Paccioni, as well as the SFSTP President Danièle Bordi, and the Éditions de Santé Président Directeur Général Dominique Dupont, at the EIPG General Assembly held in Paris in 2016, an agreement was signed between EIPG, SFSTP and Éditions de Santé, whereby EIPG has been given access to publish articles of interest from back issues of STP Pharma Pratiques in european Industrial Pharmacy, thus enabling European industrial pharmacists to benefit from the work of SFSTP and the proceedings of its annual congress.
