Scientific Board

Process Analytical Technology is one of the most exciting and important advanced technology areas meeting both the current challenges, as well as the future needs of industry. Since 1987, the IFPAC conferences have generated the enthusiastic response that resulted in the creation of a series of International meetings featuring the regulators, manufacturers, researchers and industry users.  Equipment and services are typically on display during our events.

So please join with your colleagues...the people who are the foundation of Process Analytical Technology (PAT), QbD, Process Understanding & Control, and Real-Time Analytics. Come share in discussions, give input and get ideas for the future well-being of the industry.
