Handling innovation in nanomedicines: regulatory challenges and opportunities in modern healthcare

Date: Wednesday, 20 March 2019 08:00 - 10:00

Venue: European Parliament, Members Salon

On behalf of the European Alliance for Access to Safe Medicines (EAASM), you are cordially invited to join a breakfast session on HANDLING INNOVATION IN NANOMEDICINES: regulatory challenges and opportunities in modern healthcare.


Nanomedicines are an emerging product class in the health sector which has been gaining increasing attention in academia and research over the past twenty years. Nanomedicines have the potential to provide personalised, yet more affordable, healthcare while at the same time offering better quality of life for the sick and injured, opening up numerous potential pathways to improving medical diagnosis and therapy. However, there is a need to establish robust regulation that is fit for purpose, such as the creation of harmonised definitations across Europe and development of protocols for their characterization, evaluation and pharmacovigilance oversight once an NCE is marketed.

The breakfast meeting aims to discuss the appropriateness of the current regulatory approval process for nanomedicines and their follow-on products, with an analysis of the potential implications for policymakers, regulators, payers, physicians and patients. 

We would like to encourage a meaningful participation and policy action suggestions which would be designed to boost research and innovation, as well as proposals to develop and amend the existing regulatory framework and to enhance priority areas for the development and evaluation of medicines.


The meeting will be kindly hosted by MEP Jose Faria (EPP, Portugal) on 20 March 2019, in the EU Parliament in Brussels.

Please save this date and confirm your attendance.
