EU Network Training Centre (EU NTC)

The European Union Network Training Centre (EU NTC) is a platform offering training opportunities to the staff of medicines regulatory authorities in the European medicines regulatory network, in the fields of human and veterinary medicines. It is overseen by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and Heads of Medicines Agencies (HMA).

EMA and HMA use the EU NTC to share knowledge, enhance professional development and promote the exchange of good practices across the network by offering scientific and regulatory training opportunities to all network staff.

The platform makes it possible to pool resources and harness expertise available in regulatory authorities in different EU countries to develop high quality, relevant training offers for the benefit of the entire regulatory network.

How the EU NTC works

The EU NTC makes use of the training resources of the European medicines regulatory network in several ways:

  • National competent authorities can include their training offer in the common EU NTC training catalogue accessible to all network staff.
  • Experts can help develop training resources within curriculum frameworks set up via the EU NTC, to deliver a comprehensive training in specific knowledge areas. 

All the training offers can be conveniently accessed by all network staff through a single digital platform.

The initiative involves EMA's committees and working parties to assess learning needs and adapt curriculum frameworks accordingly. This ensures that the training offers respond to evolving needs.

It also provides support to training organisers by advising on training design, development and delivery. This helps enhance the quality of training and ensures it meets objectives.
