Start date: 10 June 2019


Dear friends and colleagues,

I am honored to invite you to the PGEU Symposium to be held on June 11-12, 2019 in Kraków, Poland. This year’s edition of the Symposium will focus on „Advancing the Safety of and Improving Healthcare Delivery for European Communities”.

The public health policy should focus on preventive measures and on promoting healthy attitudes, in order to reduce human and economic costs of chronic diseases. Structural reform of health systems and prudent introduction of innovative solutions may increase their efficiency and will ensure better health outcomes.

This year, we will host a number of renowned experts from around the world, who will support us with their knowledge about shortage of medicines, implementation of European legislation pertaining to falsified medicines, and pharmaceutical services. I hope that our discussions will turn out to be inspirational, as it has been the case every year, and that our reflections after the conference will stimulate initiatives aiming to boost the development of the EU’s pharmaceutical sector.

I am certain that the picturesque city of Kraków – the former capital of Poland situated upon the country’s largest river – the Vistula – will be an inspirational venue offering a good atmosphere for the debate.

Krakow, Poland

Krakow is a city with county rights, located in southern Poland on the Vistula river, as the second largest city in Poland both with reard to the population and surface area. It is a former capital of Poland, Royal Capital City and necropolis of Polish kings, as well as the capital of Malopolska Region.


The city has grown from a Stone Age settlement to Poland’s second most important city. It began as a hamlet on Wawel Hill and was already being reported as a busy trading centre of Central Europe in 965.


Today, Krakow is a modern and developing city and a melting pot where tradition of indigenous residents is mixed with student’s avant-garde. However, thanks to a great number of monuments, excellently preserved in the city’s layout, it has never lost its majestic character. Krakow is simply magical.
