Word of the Chair
This edition of Excipients Insight comes to you during a period of transition, with summer leaving by the back door as autumn knocks at the front, and with our organisation settling into its new home in Brussels.
For IPEC Europe one of the major projects at this time of the year is the preparation for our annual general meeting and seminar, which as you are no doubt aware will take place in Nice rather than its usual home in Cannes. Work is well underway on the programme for the event, but we are always delighted to hear of any suggestions from our members. Please contact the secretariat if you have any proposals to put forward, and meanwhile I encourage you to mark 4-6 February in your calendars and look forward to meeting up with you all in Nice.
This edition comes to you hot on the heels of the joint APV and IPEC Europe Excipient Conference in Düsseldorf on 23-24 September, and it was good to meet up with so many of you at that event. For those unable to attend, highlights from the programme will be covered in subsequent editions of this newsletter.
Finally, this issue completes our coverage of ExcipientFest Europe and features our usual round-up of regulatory and science developments in the excipient world. I hope you find it of interest.
Enjoy reading and kind regards
