The Health Crisis
Making the EU’s health sector more resilient [MEMBERS-ONLY]
11:00 AM - 12:00 AM
The race to vaccinate is still under way in most EU countries and policymakers are continuing their search for solutions. Clearly, there is a need for more EU-wide coordination in pharma and healthcare. But healthcare is a national competence, and this is also where the expertise lies. Nevertheless, for crises that cross borders, such as pandemics, cooperation on data comparability and availability would be a good start. How can public-private partnerships play a role in this issue? This session will discuss the policy initiatives in this domain, taking into account the findings of a working group on pharma within the CEPS task force on industrial policy.
