ECPM has the coordinating role in the Education and Training project of IMI (Innovative Medicines Initiative, a joint undertaking between the EU, EFPIA and Academia) called PharmaTrain (2009-2014). This project has the aim of harmonising the content and the quality of training in pharmaceutical medicine/drug development sciences throughout Europe.
ECPM is accredited by IMI PharmaTrain as “Training Centre of Excellence” since 2012.

The ECPM offers a range of Training Courses in the field of science-based medicines/drug development. Emphasis is placed on requirements for rational and rapid development of a new medicinal product for the global market. The courses provide comprehensive instructions for integrating cutting-edge concepts and best practices in medical product development and regulatory sciences. Systematically, you will understand the medicines development process from discovery through research and development to regulatory approval and commercialization. This will allow to increase your overall business knowledge, to expand your career, gain inspiration and share ideas with other peers.
