Following the adoption of the EU Strategy for COVID-19 Therapeutics, the European Commission’s Task Force for Industrial Scale-Up of COVID-19 Vaccines and Therapeutics is organising an EU matchmaking event on COVID-19 therapeutics on 12 and 13 July at 9am CEST.
A preparatory webinar will take place on 14 June at 2pm CEST. The link to the webinar is here.
Medicines for COVID-19 are still in the development phase. The aim of this event is to help accelerate the development of new and repurposed medicines for COVID-19 therapeutics at all stages and mobilise the EU pharma manufacturing capacity for their potential production.
The target group is the EU COVID-19 therapeutics value chain, starting with researchers and developers, through to manufacturing companies and representatives of hospitals. The providers of clinical trials services, equipment suppliers (e.g. vials, syringes, tubes etc.), funding providers and public procurers are also invited to take part in this event.
The event will start with a half-day seminar setting the scene with a livestream welcome by Commissioner Thierry Breton and Commissioner Stella Kyriakides.
Key objectives are to:
- Support the acceleration of the development and upscale of COVID-19 therapeutics production
- Enhance participation of EU companies in therapeutics value chains
- Speed up connections between therapeutics developers, investors and companies
- Help in retro-planning strategy for the current and future therapeutics production
Companies interested must apply to the event through B2Match. Registration will open on 14 June 2021.
In order to be accepted to participate in the event, participants must comply with the event’s Call for Expression of Interest.
Applicants should complete the registration form by 25 June 2021 (1pm CEST).
