The Swiss-Austrian ISoP Chapter was founded in April 2009 and officially announced in October 2009 at the ISoP Annual Meeting in Reims (France).
ISoP Chapters Swiss / Austrian


The chapter has an educational role with the objective to increase knowledge and to ensure trainings in the field of Pharmacovigilance. The Chapter scientific meeting, generally in spring, attracts people working in many different areas of pharmacovigilance – an ideal networking platform. The chapter fosters relations between Academia, Clinicians, regulatory bodies and pharmaceutical companies as well as with other pharmacovigilance related organisations. All ISoP members are cordially welcome. Membership of the Swiss-Austrian ISoP Chapter is open to all ISoP members, free of costs (besides the Individual membership fee for ISoP). Members benefit from reductions of participant’s fees for symposia and other scientific events organized by the Swiss-Austrian Chapter.


The 18th ISoP Annual Meeting will take place on 11th-14th November 2018 at the International Conference Centre Geneva (CICG), located near the United Nations, 10 minutes from the airport and the city centre on a convenient bus route.
The local organiser is Dr Victoria Rollason from the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, and President coordinator of the ISoP Swiss-Austrian Chapter.
