In this 1-day workshop general tasks and responsibilities of a project manager in biotech industries are illustrated. Here prospective project managers already experience their future challenges and beyond that useful solution strategies and management concepts are mediated to the participants. These strategies will be instrumental for solving problems in leading positions in biopharmaceutical areas. Through an informative – interactive programme participants receive information on important aspects of GMP conform pharmaceutical production, risk management in biotech industries and modern management strategies.

This workshop takes place in two parts: in the beginning the docent points up general requirements for establishing a medical product referring to the legal background as medical product law, GMP guidelines and process validation of medical products.
