Galenic Development in Körmend

Research and development of novel galenic pharmaceutical products and establishment of an infrastructure for their production.
START DATE: 2016-10-01


Within the confines of the project, Egis Pharmaceuticals PLC develops new galenic products using already existing substances. These new products aim to offer treatment to diseases that do not have a fully satisfactory medical solution at the time. The cream, ointment, cone and gel solutions being developed will have unique compositions of pharmaceutical ingredients, or will represent new forms of effective treatment.


Results expected:

In parallel to the development of new drugs, a new plant with a floor area of 4,000 m2 will be built—which will comply with the strictest quality assurance standards and will use new applied technologies.

Egis will seek to obtain patent protection for individual innovations that result from the project. During this four-year project, Egis and its consortium partners are conducting basic and applied research in order to develop a number of products—wherein the development of certain products is expected to be completed within the life of the project.
