Objectives and competences

Quality in the pharmaceutical industry is an inherent requirement for the product at any stage of drug development. At the postgraduate level, the regulations involved in the life of the medicine will be worked on: from the initial development (BPL, BPC or ICH Q8) to the final phases of placing on the market (commercial NCF, distribution). Because regulations are constantly being updated, industry experts must keep up with them. To this end, participants in this postgraduate degree programme will be provided with tools they need to help them independently deepen their understanding and update their knowledge.
