GRiP Paediatric Formulations team launches "Meet the Expert" webinars
The GRiP International platform is now fully active


The GRiP Paediatric Formulation team has successfully launched a series of Webinars named “Meet the Expert” as part of an international platform developed to share knowledge, expertise and experience around paediatric drug delivery and pharmaceutical issues both in clinical trials and practice worldwide.  


During the webinars, which have already reached a vast global audience, experts in Paediatric Formulations tackle the most relevant topics in this area. The “Meet the Expert” webinars are completely interactive – participants are encouraged to contribute to the Q&A sessions which take place after the expert’s presentation. The questions and answers, as well as links to download and watch the webinars, are regularly posted on the GRiP Website and the newly-launched GRiP Blog (
