Both in the pharmaceutical as in the medical device industry, regulatory requirements are increasing.

What mean elements must be covered by quality agreements, specifically what is newly needed the last years? What are challenges the industry faces and how has Covid impacted the supply of products from these CMO’s/CSC’s? In this webcast experts from both pharma and MedTech industries will provide the latest updates from a European perspective.

A Q&A session will be provided at the end of the sessions, where questions in the chat will be discussed.
