The 16th edition of the European Symposium on Controlled Drug Delivery will be held on April 8 – 10, 2020 in Egmond aan Zee, The Netherlands.
The program comprises about 25 lectures given by invited experts from academia and industry on cutting edge topics in this field. Sufficient time is reserved for discussions and meeting of colleagues during the lecture program and our highly successful poster session.
