On behalf of the Organizing Committee I am pleased to invite you and your co-workers to participate in the 7th BBBB International Conference on Pharmaceutical Sciences held in Hungary again, where this conference series started in 2005. The goal of the founders by organizing regional conferences named “The Balaton-Baltic-Bled-Bosporus Conference on Pharmaceutical Sciences” was to establish a close cooperation among the Pharmaceutical Societies of Hungary, Finland, Estonia, Slovenia and the Turkish Pharmaceutical Technology Scientists’ Association, member organizations of EUFEPS.

This scientific forum traditionally gathers the members of these Societies and colleagues from neighbouring and other countries, and serves as a strong and stable background for permanent dialogue between pharmacists and other scientists in the fields of pharmaceutical sciences, drug research and development.

The conference provides the possibility for the participants to present their results, discuss the new developments and the future directions of the pharmaceutical sciences in a broad sense. It offers a good opportunity to promote scientific achievements for talented young pharmacists in Pharmaceutical Companies, Departments of Pharmaceutical Faculties and Academic Institutes. Other goals of this regional conference series include the initiation of common research projects, and fostering the application of the results of new approaches for the accelerated development and introduction of safer and more effective medicines.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Balatonfüred and having a fruitful and vivid conference!

Prof. Éva Szökő
Chair of the 7th BBBB International Conference on Pharmaceutical Sciences
