  • What’s in for 2016

    We closed 2015 on the achievement of major milestones and facing 2016 with important developments for our organisation.

    EPEMED played a key role in providing expert guidance and contribution to elaborate on a centric health prerogative of the EU Presidency, “Making Access to Personalised Medicine a Reality for Patients”, at the July High Level European conference endorsed by the Luxembourg Ministry of Health. The conference’s main results fed into draft council conclusions submitted by Lydia Mutsch, Luxembourg Minister of Health, to health ministers during the EPSCO Council and adopted by the Council on 7 December 2015 (you can access the outcome of proceedings on our web news section). Personalised Medicine will thus remain on the political agenda and European health priorities as Netherlands takes over the EU presidency.
