Plenary Event “Driving innovation in health: How does Europe remain a global leader in life sciences?”

The pharmaceutical industry is on the cusp of delivering ground-breaking treatments for patients. From CAR-T to cell therapies and the HIV vaccine, innovative therapies have the potential to
revolutionise patients’ lives.

During a series of “fireside chats” we will discuss the following themes:

– How collaboration in research can advance the development of treatments and accelerate patients’ access to innovative therapies
– What is the role of incentives in sustaining innovation in healthcare in Europe
– How we can further empower patients to contribute to the innovation and medicines development process
– How we can introduce future innovations into healthcare systems in a sustainable way
