Minister Malas, Dr Hunter, Commissioner Dalli, ladies and gentlemen.

I would like to thank to Minister Malas and Dr Hunter for organising this conference and for inviting me to speak this morning – I am delighted to be here for this important event.

I would like to take this opportunity to talk about some of the actions we are taking at European level to promote open innovation in health, and give you an idea of what is coming up on the horizon.
