C.I.G (Common Interest Groups)

The C.I.G (Common Interest Groups) aim to bring together manufacturers and suppliers (from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors) to share practices and questions. An AXNUMXP CIG must advance the issues presented. The members of the CIG will carry out a collaborative work around the same theme and will return it during an event AXNUMXP or through publications (the magazine La Vague, scientific and technical guide ...).
