International Symposium on Pharmaceutical Engineering Research

SPhERe 2023!

Dear colleagues, partners and friends,

on behalf of the Scientific Committee and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering I cordially invite scientists, researchers and professionals from industry, academia and research institutions to participate in the 5th International Symposium on Pharmaceutical Engineering Research – SPhERe. The conference will take place from October 18 – 20, 2023 in Braunschweig, Germany.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stephan Scholl
Conference Chair

SPhERe addresses major issues on innovative methods and processes to develop and manufacture effective and customized drugs in a cost-efficient manner. Bringing together pharmacists, process and production engineers as well as microtechnologists from academia and industry, the conference will promote multidisciplinary exchange and collaboration.

The symposium is an excellent forum specially for young scientists to share and discuss important new developments and scientific advancements in pharmaceutical engineering and related fields.

Conference contributions are especially invited addressing – but are not limited to –

  • API Synthesis
  • Scale-Up Processes
  • Scale-Down Processes
  • Solid, Semi-Solid & Liquid Dosage Forms
  • Digital Models in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
  • Analytics, Process Analytical Technology (PAT)
  • Microsystems for Pharmaceutical Testing

In particular, we would like to motivate young professionals to exchange ideas with colleagues from Europe and beyond to present their results in this multidisciplinary setting. For early career scientists the conference offers the chance to get in touch with advanced researchers who will provide insight into their different career paths. The best posters will be honoured with SPhERe Poster Awards.

Further information will be available soon!
