Driving Health and Growth; A call for an industrial strategy for Europe

The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) recently published a call for an industrial strategy for Europe that can drive Europe’s health and growth and realise the region’s potential to be a world leader in medical innovation.

In light of Ursula von der Leyen’s statement that ‘’A sustainable Europe is one that opens up opportunities, innovates, creates jobs and offers a competitive edge to its industries.’’, EFPIA outlines five areas where European decision-makers should focus to foster Europe’s growth and drive Europe’s health:

  1. Maintaining a world-class system for the approval of new treatments
  2. Better innovation policies to enable Europe to lead in research and development (R&D)
  3. A digital Europe that will support patients in their healthcare journey
  4. A smart trade agenda that supports EU competitiveness and access
  5. Policies to preserve the environment

This initiative may be interpreted as a way to influence the definition of the Commission Work Programme for the years to come.
