Conference: Towards New Models of Inovation, Brussels 18 November 2010

Can We Afford the Current Model of Medical Innovation?
Towards New Models of Innovation
18 November 2010, 09:00 – 13:50
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 meeting 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.

There is no sin in being wrong. The sin is in our unwillingness to examine our own beliefs, and in believing that our authorities cannot be wrong. Far from creating cynics, such a story is likely to foster a healthy and creative skepticism, which is something quite different from cynicism.”
- Neil Postman in The End of Education
