Single-Use Technologies VII: Revolutionizing Manufacturing for Tomorrow’s Medicines

Late Spring 2025
TBA – Europe

About This Conference

Single-Use Technologies VII: Revolutionizing Manufacturing for Tomorrow’s Medicines is the seventh event of an ECI conference series started in 2015 and unique in its aim – to advance knowledge in the fundamental science and engineering underpinning Single-Use Technology (SUT).

The conference will be a 4-day event and will target 100-120 attendees. The speakers and attendees are from industry and academia, single-use final product (e.g., bags, assemblies) manufacturers, film/resin manufacturers, the biopharmaceutical industry, experts in polymers/materials science, manufacturers of novel biomedical devices and organizations that support and facilitate single-use technology design and applications. Regulators are also invited to speak and attend.

This conference builds on the success of the previous editions, targeting highly relevant talks and poster presentations, and networking, with a focus on four key themes: 

  • Quality Foundations – demonstrates the continued efforts to meet fundamental requirements for single-use technologies and their applications: quality standards and regulatory compliance. Addresses risk-based management approach to validate new product introductions.
  • Single-Use Technology Advancements and Enablers – refer to innovations that enhance single-use applications (e.g. new materials, films, sensors, and analytical tools), to the use of single use solutions in the R&D landscape and demonstrate how they improve manufacturing operations (e.g. process intensification, continuous processing)
  • Sustainable Solutions in Single-Use Design and Manufacturing – signifies and acknowledges the collective efforts for an industry-wide approach to design and use single-use technology in a sustainable manner.
  • Future Perspectives and Emerging Trends – examines the applications to new medicines of single-use technologies, broader developments in single-use design and application, including wider use in R&D, and adjacent technologies that enhance single-use applications in the manufacture of tomorrow’s medicines.

This conference brings together a multidisciplinary community interested in collaborating openly towards the advancement, expansion, and environmentally responsible use of single-use technology in the bioprocessing industry. The organizing committee welcomes the submission of high-quality scientific work, supported by data.

This is the seventh event of the ECI Single Use Technology conference series started in 2015 and unique in its aim – to advance knowledge in the fundamental science and engineering underpinning Single-Use Technology (SUT).

General Information About ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a not-for-profit, global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962 that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Poster sessions will be scheduled for evening discussion as well. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.

Smoking is prohibited at ECI conferences and conference functions.
