Can We Afford the Current Model of Medical Innovation?
Towards New Models of Innovation
18 November 2010, 09:00 – 13:50
Room (JAN 6Q2), European Parliament, Brussels


Hosts
Thijs Berman MEP, Progressive Alliance of Socialists & Democrats
Eva Joly MEP, The Greens/EFA
Carl Schlyter MEP, The Greens /EFA and on behalf of the
European Parliament Working Group on Innovation, Access to Medicines
and Poverty-Related Diseases


At present, we suffer from a lack of public health-driven medical
innovation and poor global access to essential medicines. At the same
time in the EU and around the world, governments are incapable of
facing the growing cost of health care of which medicine prices are an
important factor. To respond to global health needs, new models of
affordable and socially useful medical innovation are needed.

This conference follows and builds on the earlier roundtable on
innovation by the EP working group on innovation and access on the
27th of October. It will bring together experts, NGO representatives,
scientists and academics, with input from the pharmaceutical industry,
European policymakers and country delegates to advance the
implementation of EU policy and budget decisions that support new
models of biomedical innovation.
