Brussels, 3 June 2021
EuropaBio organised an online info session for SMEs active within the healthcare biotechnology sector to learn about the key EU policies and their possible impact on their current business strategies. This was the second event organised under the EuropaBio SME Platform
EuropaBio’s Healthcare Biotechnology team Bernard Grimm, Violeta Georgieva and Darren Kinsella gave an overview of some key ongoing initiatives affecting healthcare biotechnology in the EU. Our experts reviewed the ongoing revision of the Orphan Medicinal Products Regulation and its impact on SMEs involved in researching new therapies for rare diseases, the EU IP Action Plan and the importance of intellectual property for small businesses, and the multi-layered Pharmaceutical Strategy for Europe. Participants had the chance to learn about the recently launched EuropaBio’s Biopharmaceutical Strategy Group, a forum for members, where some of the key initiatives within the EU Pharmaceutical legislation revision will be addressed.
The event was moderated by Darren Kinsella, Healthcare Biotechnology Manager at EuropaBio.
