The Novel Therapies and Technologies Working Party (NTWP) provides recommendations to the Committee for Veterinary Medicinal Products (CVMP) on all matters relating to veterinary novel therapies and technologies.

Responsibilities and composition

The group is involved in activities such as preparing and updating European and international guidelines, and providing recommendations and advice to the CVMP on topics related to novel veterinary therapies and technologies.

It also addresses queries from other EMA committees, working parties, the European Union (EU) Member States and other parties, and contributes to workshops and training sessions on the evaluation of novel veterinary therapies and technologies.

It contributes towards establishing a future regulatory framework for the authorisation of novel veterinary therapies and technologies in the EU, and implementing the EMA Regulatory Science Strategy to 2025 and the European medicines agencies network strategy.

The NTWP  aims to foster and support innovation, to enable the timely availability of novel veterinary therapies and technologies in the EU.     

The NTWP is composed of European experts nominated and appointed by CVMP. Additional observers may also attend the meetings of the working party, if required.
