European Medicines Agency publishes agenda for workshop on conflicts of interests on 6 September 2013
The European Medicines Agency has today published the agenda for its conflicts-of-interests workshop to be hosted by the Agency on 6 September 2013.
The workshop, entitled 'best expertise vs conflicts of interests: striking the right balance', aims to elicit the views and concerns from academia, patient organisations, committee representatives, non-governmental organisations, the pharmaceutical industry and the scientific media on the Agency's current conflicts-of-interests policy. Representatives from national competent authorities, European Union (EU) institutions and other agencies will also attend the workshop.
Ahead of the workshop, the Agency invites comments from all its stakeholders on how it can find the right balance between best expertise and conflicts of interests. Written contributions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 16 August 2013.
