Importance of Health Innovation in The Future of Europe
At the COCIR Annual General Assembly in Brussels this year, we decided to hold an open session, focusing on the future of Europe in health innovation.
We heard from the European Commission their vision for a competitive and innovative European market in the light of the EU Agenda on Digital Transformation of Health and Care.
We used the opportunity of this open session to invite leading Scientific Society ESTRO, with whom we already enjoy well-established partnerships, to learn from scientists how they can contribute to a value-based approach in their domain. We also had the privilege to have Karin Sipido, Chair of the H2020 Scientific Panel for Health.
Earlier this year, and building on our MDR position paper and EU RA Day held in Brussels exclusively for our Members, we had open and constructive discussions with European Commission, some present Member States and Notified Bodies representatives on industry regulatory challenges in the years to come and how to tackle the dual challenge of creating the right regulatory and at the same time the investment conditions for the European medical device industry.
Continuing to capitalize on the COCIR competencies and strengths we have decided to organize a Seminar on Medical Device Software tabled for 8 June titled “Between US Deregulation and the Labyrinth of EU Regulation”. Limited availability. Read more and register now here.
