Digital: 10.12.2020 – A new industrial strategy for the COVID-19 era


Join Friends of Europe for our online debate Investing in innovation in health: A new industrial strategy for the COVID-19 era on Thursday 10 December from 10.00 to 11.00 CET.

We’ll hear from Christophe Grudler, Member of the European Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE); George Katzourakis, Senior Vice President and Head of Europe at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK); Despina Spanou, Head of Cabinet of European Commissioner for Promoting our European Way of Life Schinas, as well as industry representatives and European policy makers.

Europe is home to world-leading pharmaceutical and med-tech companies and is the continent with the most cost-effective provision of universal healthcare. The 2021 EU’s industrial strategy update represents a huge potential for the health sector to be a motor of sustainable recovery.
How can a new industrial strategy help boost the EU’s health sector?
What policy measures should be considered along the recovery funding package and recently announced EU-BARDA agency for biomedical research and development so to not miss the opportunity to make Europe the Silicon Valley for research and innovation?
What are the appropriate incentives for private sector investment medical innovation?


You will receive a confirmation of your registration with log-on details prior to the event. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to welcoming you online on 10 December.
Best regards,
