Read the final report of the International Avicenna Alliance Conference: "In vivo, in vitro in silico: Why computer modelling is the next evolution of the healthcare sector" which took place on 4 September 2018 at the European Parliament, hosted by MEP Lieve Wierinck.
MEP Lieve Wierinck, in collaboration with the Avicenna Alliance and the VPHi, organised this conference to strive towards a common international framework for the validation and acceptance of computer modelling and simulation (CM&S) and adding the topic on the agenda of regulators and policy makers.
The event brought together experts speakers from the EU, the USA, and India, from the
FDA, leading medical device, pharmaceutical and software companies, and elite academic
researchers. They discussed why a regulatory framework is crucial, what are the benefits for
patients, the various industry stakeholders and regulators in and outside of the European Union.
Full details on the event can be found on the official report that has just been released by the Avicenna Alliance.
What we believe to be extremely important is that, in her closing notes, Lieve Wierinck committed to ensuring that in silico medicine will receive funding as part of Horizon Europe. This is another winning match for the in silico medicine community!
