The month of December for the pharma and health sector will open on a vote from the INTA Committee on its draft opinion on the proposal on supplementary protection certificate for medicinal products on 3 December.

The 7th annual regulatory conference organised by the European Biopharmaceutical Enterprises will take place on 4 December. This conference will explore how fostering collaboration between regulators, HTA bodies, payers and other stakeholders can help ATMP developers meet evidence requirements for better patient access.
