Why attend?

The Partnerships MeetUp brings together anyone who is interested in pioneering medicine through close collaboration. The event offers an inspiring keynote and interactive parallel sessions, with contributions from professionals in the pharma industry, medtech, charities, academia and patient organizations. Are you interested in bringing better medical solutions to patients? Would you like to learn more about essentials for successful collaborative innovation? Then sign up for the third annual Partnerships MeetUp in Utrecht this year on Thursday, 1 November!

In the Netherlands alone, more than 200 partnerships are active to address health challenges facing our society. The Partnerships MeetUp is an excellent forum to share knowledge and expertise. You can expect to hear some engaging ideas on effective public-private partnerships, with time to explore new ways to bring solutions to patients more quickly.

An interesting and thought-provoking day is guaranteed, including an inspiring keynote speech by Tomas Salmonson – the current chair of the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use, CHMP, European Medicines Agency, EMA.

Our format has evolved this year. There will be parallel sessions in the morning, looking at ‘Opportunities for Bringing Better Medical Solutions to Patients’. These sessions will focus on regulatory innovation, neglected diseases, strategic asset sharing, and data infrastructure.

The theme of the parallel afternoon workshops is ‘Essentials for Successful Collaborative Innovation’, exploring repurposing platforms, patient inclusion, consortia branding, and big data issues.

Register now for the third Partnerships MeetUp, at the Media Plaza in Utrecht on 1 November 2018. And get ready to ‘Pioneer Medicine. Together.’

The Partnerships MeetUp is organized by Lygature, a not-for-profit organization based in the Netherlands.
