European Medicines Agency publishes report on conflicts of interests workshop
The European Medicines Agency today published a report highlighting the outcomes of its workshop on conflicts of interests , which was hosted at the Agency on 6 September 2013. The report gives an overview of the issues debated at the workshop and summarises the key interventions of the panellists and other speakers.
The Agency has also published a video recording of the workshop.
The slides presented by the Agency's Executive Director, Guido Rasi, and all other participants at the workshop, are also available.
The objective of the workshop was to elicit the views and concerns of stakeholders on the Agency's conflicts-of-interests policy for scientific committee members and experts. Inputs from the workshop will now be considered by the Agency as it moves into the revision cycle of its policy.
Proposals will be presented for discussion at the Agency's Management Board in December 2013.
