3rd Nordic Conference on Pediatric Medicines - promoting pediatric research through collaboration and new ideas
During the conference we discussed the EU Pediatric Regulation (EC 1901/2006) and the ways to improve the health of the children in Europe by increasing the research and authorization of medicines for children and improving the information on medicines designed for children.
PIF organized on Tuesday 15th October the Smart Health Forum in the European Parliament in Brussels. The event was organized together with the Swedish and Danish associations as well as with EK (Confederation of Finnish Industries) and EFPIA.
The Finnish EU presidency kicked off in the very first days of July with very little pomp and circumstance; instead of grand galas, the Finns were made part of the process by Government organising a popular festival. Finland’s attitude to its presidency period is matter-of-fact and pragmatically goal-directed. This will, by no means, be an easy period, with all the particular aspects involved: there will be the call to order of the new European Parliament, various appointments, Brexit and the new Commission taking office for its five-year term.
