On 18 February, Friends of Europe held the first of three high-level roundtables on disruptive models of healthcare for Europe.
This first roundtable was hosted at the European Parliament by Philippe De Backer MEP. It focused on the vast potential of innovative healthcare technologies and determined how the present regulatory framework could be improved to encourage fresh thinking.
The event was also an occasion for Friends of Europe to launch its Informal Group on Health Policy with leading Members of the European Parliament. This group will look at key health challenges facing the European Union and ensure stronger EU action on health over the coming months.
The following are some key quotes from the roundtable.
