Conference on "50 Years of EU pharma legislation: Achievements and future perspectives"
Brussels, 28 September 2015
To mark the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the first EU pharmaceutical law the European Commission is organising a one-day conference that will take place in Brussels on 28 September. The conference will review past achievements while focusing on the present and future role of EU pharmaceutical legislation in protecting the health of citizens in the EU and in the world, and in promoting advances in science, innovation and public health. Despite the many achievements there are still many challenges ahead.
Different stakeholders see these challenges but each from different perspectives. The conference wants to bring to surface these different perspectives in an open and stimulating exchange with representatives from national governments, European institutions, national competent authorities, industry, healthcare professionals, academia and patient groups, with the objective of working towards a shared vision for the future.
