It is with real pleasure that I join the Pharmaceutical Technology Europe (PTE) team. I am honoured to be the Editor of this magazine, especially at such an exciting time. This year celebrates the
35th anniversary of the Pharmaceutical Technology brand, an event that will be celebrated with special feature articles that
evaluate the last three and a half decades of developments in the pharmaceutical industry (be sure to check out http://PharmTech.com/ in July for the celebratory retrospectives).
Dr Jo Watts
Given the current economic climate, none of us can foresee what the future holds for the industry, but our editorial team
will endeavour to continue bringing you relevant, topical and unbiased information. As Editor, I will undertake providing
you with engaging, enjoyable content that you will find both interesting and beneficial.
I look forward to meeting some of you at industry events in the coming months and hearing your views on what we can do to
make your job easier. We welcome your feedback and participation in our online PharmTechGroup communities on LinkedIn and
This month also sees the next ACHEMA event. In current economic times such shows can seem a financial burden, but the chance
to meet people face-to-face is becoming less frequent, and to have such large numbers from the industry all under one roof
is a compelling enough reason to attend. This year, the majority of the PTE team will be attending the show in Frankfurt.
Visit us in hall 3.1, stand J25. You are more than welcome to visit us to let us know what's happening in your corner of the
market, or to tell us about something exciting you've seen.
I would like to thank you, European Pharmaceutical Technologists, for your continued support of PTE over the years. With your
constant input we will go on making PTE the successful magazine that it is.
Many thanks and best wishes,
Jo Watts, Editor
