A strong EU pharmaceutical sector is essential to ensure Europe’s disease prevention capabilities, preparedness and assure our health 'independence'. If we want to foster medical research, facilitate patient access and boost the competitiveness of Europe’s life sciences industry, a sectoral political approach is needed. This can be facilitated by the launch of a new EU strategic dialogue between key stakeholders.
