IDA Conference Centre, Copenhagen  (visit this link for more information)

Date: 21st September 2020

Time: 08:30-16:00

With experienced Process Validation speakers/ workshop hosts from both local companies including AN Group, Medico Support and International Novatek International.


Process Validation in the Life Sciences is an industry network group based in Copenhagen.

How do we differ from global groups like ISPE or PDA? The answer is that we are not a non-profit organization and  not sponsored by corporate entities. Our members’ needs, experience and engagement drive the happenings within the network. ValidEire serves only an administrative function.

An annual membership fee of 2500 DKK or 335 Euros including VAT covers administrative costs, planning meetings and participation in two separate full day Process Validation workshop-type events.  Alternatively there is a per workshop fee of 1500 DKK or 200 Euros including VAT.


In this Full Day Course you will work with the course leaders to develop a deeper understanding of the application and benefits of risk based approaches to facility fit and specifically writing good URS documents.  The day will consist of short presentations by the course leaders, followed by Plenary Q&A and workshops divided into teams. The purpose of this model of workshop is to engage, challenge, learn, listen and share across the industry with diversification of insights with members from different companies.
