The European Medicines Agency (EMA) launched a micro-, small- and medium-sized-enterprise (SME) office in 2005. The office is dedicated to addressing the particular needs of smaller companies.

The establishment of the SME office followed the European Commission's adoption of specific provisions on 15 December 2005. These provisions were aimed at promoting innovation and the development of new medicines for human and veterinary use by SMEs.

SME online survey

EMA’s SME initiative is ten years old. To mark the anniversary, EMA carried out an online survey to gather feedback on the programme. Opinions gathered will help EMA tailor its future activities to the needs of SMEs. Survey results will be shared at a roundtable meeting with SME stakeholders at the end of 2015.
