Despite being on-line it has been very interactive. The presenter is an expert on the matter and explains in a very clear and concise way.

Alba Marcé, Regulatory Affairs Specialist, Grifols, S.A.

I like the fact that (the speaker) took the time to answer questions

Jos Wesselman, Sr. Manager Development, Basic Pharma Technologies B.V.

I learned a lot and got some great insights into the process of design and development. It is an intense course with a lot of ground covered.

Damien Tackney, Reg Affairs, Ovelle Ltd

I was hoping for further improvement of my understanding of the matter of inhalational drugs, especially MDI, and this expectation was fully met. The speakers had superb knowledge of the subject, vast experience and a great sense of humour.

Robin Boehm, Team Leader Regulatory Submissions - New Products, STADA Arzneimittel AG

The content, presentation and speaker have been very good. The online version of the course has also work well. The only "problem" with the online version of the course is that we do not have direct interaction with other participants. So, at some point it would help to connect everybody with camera to share opinion or experiences.

Laura Lopez Vicente, R&D Manager, Instituto Grifols S.A.

Great overall. All topics of design control were covered well and I think everyone left with a better understanding than when they arrived. I have definitely applied some of the lessons we learned to my current role.

Emma Fairhall, R&D Manager, Leica Biosystems

I am very satisfied with the course. I learnt a lot and the subject of HFE studies is much clearer to me. We were able to have very good discussions with the speaker who seemed to be very knowledgeable.

Nina Bladh, Director CMC Regulatory Affairs, Camurus AB

I was able to take away relevant information from each presentation. Great networking and worth the cost and time of international travel.

Michelle Sparks, Head of Product Development, Zafgen

Generally very good. We were well looked after. Venue excellent, management forum very professional. Needs more than just device suppliers in attendance.

Victoria Morgan, Director Segment Marketing, West Pharmaceutical Services

Very good and useful. Excellent.
