Welcome to the CMC Strategy Forum Europe

The CMC Strategy Forum has established an excellent reputation for being the premier scientific meeting that brings together regulatory, industry, and academic professionals to discuss key emerging CMC issues that affect biotechnology in an open and transparent workshop format. The purpose of the CMC Strategy Forum is to provide a venue for biotechnology/biological product discussion on relevant CMC issues throughout the lifecycle of a product. The Forum will follow the established model of the CMC Forum series with an emphasis on topics and regulatory updates relevant for Europe.
