Time to act: Building a pharmaceutical framework fit for rare diseases European Parliament, 60 Rue Wiertz, 1047, Bruxelles

We are on the verge of a once-in-a-generation opportunity to determine the future of healthcare in Europe.

To seize this decisive moment, MEP Stelios Kympouropoulos is hosting an event in the European Parliament, Brussels, focusing on the upcoming proposals under the Pharmaceutical Strategy, with a particular focus on rare diseases on 8 February 2023, 18:00-20:00 CET.

In addition to keynote presentations from high-level speakers, our exciting line-up of panellists will address:
  • The reality of living with rare disease
  • The value of newborn screening: An SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) case study
  • Key issues related to the revision of the EU pharmaceutical framework
This event will be a prime opportunity for a discussion amongst EU policymakers, academia, civil society and industry to assess key issues in the spirit of collaboration and to examine how the EU Pharmaceutical Strategy can shape European healthcare and innovation.

This initiative is being organised thanks to the support of EFPIA (The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations). MEP Stelios Kympouropoulos would like to extend his thanks to SMA Europe for their endorsement of this session.

Stay tuned for more details and speaker announcements!
