A second summer Training School on “Medicines Shortages” (COST Action CA15105 – European Medicines Shortages Research Network – addressing supply problems to patients) addressing Pharmaceutical Supply Chains II is being organized by the Instituto Politécnico de Portalegre (IPP) and Centro de Recursos Naturais e Ambiente (CERENA/IST), with the support of IBM Portugal and TAP Portugal. The programme stakeholder and local organiser is Prof. Joao Luis Miranda. Teachers, researchers, MSc/PhD students, post-docs, and practitioners will meet at the College of Technology and Management (ESTG/IPP), Portalegre, Portugal, 03-07 of July-2017, to discuss “Medicines Shortages” topics.
The program consists of a seminar that is open to the general public on the first day (3rd July). The seminar will present other relevant challenges to the Action, and the participants in the seminar will also gaining a complete overview of the Training School, since the main topics of the technical sessions in the following days will also be introduced.
Attendance at all five 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 workshops, or only one of the technical sessions is possible upon registration.
