iVigee and the Institute of Pharmacovigilance decided to get together before the summer starts and enjoyed teambuilding at Prague's Go Kart Arena. The team was blessed that our colleagues Eva and Almudena, based outside the Czech Republic, joined after taking a short flight (from the Slovak Republic and Spain respectively). The evening was tons of fun racing the go karts, enjoying each other's company, and tasting all the delicious food and drinks (oh yes indeed there was Pilsen beer, and Czech "rizek" or "schnitzel" as others know it by.
For those who don't know, the Institute of Pharmacovigilance (IPV) is a non-profit organization that is committed to the following:
Our vision is to elevate Pharmacovigilance profession. We do it by setting standards of Career Framework, expected competence, and trustworthy professional certification. By improving the competency of pharmacovigilance professionals, we enhance performance and recognition of the whole pharmacovigilance discipline.
As iVigee collaborates closely on a few different initiatives, and as we are both based in Prague, it made perfect sense to celebrate together. Hopefully we will have the same opportunity again in the future.
