EACPT EC Meeting at University in Kiel
The 12th EACPT Congress in 2015 is an unparalleled educational forum where you will learn about the newest developments, innovative techniques, and advanced practices in topics such as drug discovery, drug development, pharmacology and pharmacotherapy.
The Congress gives you the unique opportunity to network with top ranking specialists in pharmacology and pharmacotherapy, from around the world, and learn from the best. Reviews and commentaries from the Congress will be published in the EACPT Official Journal - Clinical Therapeutics.

The Congress will provide excellent formal and informal networking opportunities, supported after the Congress through the new website of the EACPT, due to be launched within the coming month.
There is to be launch of a new Associate Membership category for the EACPT, included within registration for the Madrid June 2015 Congress. Associate Members will have discounts on registration for EACPT Congresses and Focus Meetings, online access to the official EACPT journal Clinical Therapeutics, and many opportunities to become directly involved in networking with fellow clinical pharmacologists from throughout Europe and further afield.
Nominations were discussed for EACPT Awards to be presented at the 12th EACPT Congress in Madrid. The EACPT Lifetime Award is for significant achievement in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, both for the benefit of science and also for the benefit and health of the specialty, over a whole working life. The EACPT Scientific Award is awarded for the best scientific paper on a topic relevant to clinical pharmacology published by a European clinical pharmacologist in the two years between EACPT congresses. The EPHAR-EACPT award is by the Federation of European Pharmacology Societies (EPHAR) and the EACPT - a joint initiative to award the best work in translational research in pharmacology. There will be 2 awards of 1,000 € each, that will be given in 2015 to young scientists who have published an outstanding research paper in the past two years.
There were reports on interaction with other professional organisations and societies, including the European Medicines Agency, IUPHAR, the International Union of Pharmacology and EPHAR, the European Federation of Pharmacology Societies. Plans with EPHAR, in addition to the above awards, include a joint session on immunopharmacology during the Madrid Congress in June.
Calls were agreed for future EACPT Focus Meetings, with a deadline 31st May 2015 for bids for summer 2016 and summer 2017. The 2017 meeting will be held in Prague as a Satellite Meeting of the 2017 EACPT Prague Congress
Bids were discussed in outline for the 2021 EACPT Congress, for which proposals from the Dutch Society for Clinical Pharmacology and the Hellenic Society of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology have been short-listed.
