EIC – EMA Info Day: Regulatory support for the development of innovative medicines and technologies

The European Innovation Council (EIC) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) are organising an Info Day. Participants will get to know the wide range of support services provided by EMA to researchers and SMEs active in research and innovation in the pharmaceutical and med-tech sectors. Speakers will talk about how to engage with EMA at different development milestones, and on the range of EMA support services. Benefits of the Innovation Task Force (ITF) services, PRIME and Scientific Advice, as well as practical details on how to prepare and submit applications, will be tackled. The event will entail testimonials from academic researchers and companies funded by the EIC Pathfinder and Accelerator programmes on their experience with EMA services. EIC grantees and future EIC applicants are strongly encouraged to participate. The event is also open to researchers and SMEs funded by other EU programmes.  This event is relevant if:  You are you an innovator in the health-tech sector funded by the EIC or other EU programmes. You are in the early development stage of a medical technology or pharmaceutical, and have not considered regulatory aspects of your innovation and support from authorities. Your medical technology or pharmaceutical development is more advanced and you want to learn how to best apply to European Medicines Agency (EMA) services such as PRIME or Scientific Advice. The event is free of charge and no registration is required. The Info Day will be broadcasted on this web page
