On September 14, 2016 at Graz University of Technology the 7th edition of the two-day "International Congress on Pharmaceutical Engineering (ICPE)" started. At the venue “Alte Technik” top researchers from more than 20 countries are expected.
ICPE 2016, one of the world-renowned international congresses in the pharmaceutical process engineering field, takes place from September 14 to 15 and is organized by the Competence Center Research Center Pharmaceutical Engineering GmbH (RCPE) together with the Institute of Process and Particle Technology (IPPT) of Graz University of Technology and the Association for Pharmaceutical Technology (APV), Mainz.
„The ICPE 2016 will bring together representatives from industry, academia, public authorities and young scientists at international level, thus enabling a wide exchange of research results at the economic and scientific location of Styria," explains organizer and ICPE-host Prof. Johannes Khinast, CEO of RCPE and Head of the institute IPPT at Graz University of Technology.
The main topics of the international conference are:
- Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
- Continuous manufacturing
- PAT for continuous manufacturing
- Regulatory aspects of continuous manufacturing
At the ICPE 2016 seven keynote speaches are held- such as by Dr. Jobst Limberg, Prof. Benjamin J. Glasser and Professor Kieran Hodnett – as well as six short presentations; there are more than 20 posters presented and the expected 100 congress participants will have a guided tour through the laboratories and the RCPE pilot plant at the Graz University of Technology. The program will be rounded off by giving demonstrations in the field of extrusion, spray drying and tableting.

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
