Component Type: Session

In this session, we aim to take the long view of regulatory science and innovation in establishing the value of medicines and medical treatments, exploring the heritage of European contributions to this scholarship and practice. However, this is undertaken only in the service of the principal goal of this session: to map out the role that Europe could - and should - play in the global evolution of regulation.
