About the Academy

The ECA Academy is the educational organisation established by the ECA Foundation (please see www.eca-foundation.org for more detailed information). It develops and organises a wealth of international education courses, conferences (also as part of a GMP Certification Programme) and webinars around GMP and regulatory compliance, picking up emerging GMP challenges and currently discussed subjects. While courses and webinars are designed to provide continuous education for GMP professionals in production, quality control, quality assurance etc, European conferences are organised as discussion forums on new trends and developments.

The Academy is supported by the ECA Foundation Advisory Board. This Board acts as conceptual sponsor in the development of new courses and conferences and ensures best quality and participant satisfaction by evaluating all events.

As the Foundation does not employ own staff all services offered by the ECA Academy and with regard to ECA Academy Memberships are solely managed by Concept Heidelberg, a leading professional European training and information services provider in the pharmaceutical industry environment.
