2nd EAPM Annual Congress organized by HARMONY Partner: European Alliance for Personalised Medicine

Milan, Italy

26/11/2018

Forward as One: Integrating Innovation into Europe’s Healthcare Systems. That is the overall theme of the European Alliance for Personalised Medicine’s (EAPM) 2nd Annual Congress, organized from 26-28 November in Milan, Italy. EAPM is a HARMONY Partner.


Personalised medicine is in the news more-and-more often these days, with its goal of giving the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. Breakthroughs in genetics, calls for more and better screening, developments in imaging techniques and the emergence of what we now call ‘Big Data’ have already changed the world of healthcare forever. More than 1000 Life Sciences thought leaders will convene at the Congress, to be held at the Palazzo Lombardia. As it did last year in Belfast, the annual event will bring together key audiences who contribute to the vast programme content and vital knowledge exchange. 

More than ever this year, a focus will be on the upcoming European Parliament elections and the installation of a new College of Commissioners, tasked with devising and implementing regulatory frameworks in all areas, including certain aspects of health. More than 700 MEPS will be elected next summer and the Commission will also have a new president as Jean-Claude Juncker steps down. One of the goals of Congress is to engage politicians and lawmakers in the fast-growing field of personalised medicine, and deliver political asks through our consensus-based process. 

Europe needs to grasp the fact that health equals wealth and that investment in research and innovation, alongside laws and rules that are fit-for-purpose and reflect the swiftly changing world of medicine, are vital. Hence our continued interaction with MEPs, Commissioners and Member State health leaders.


HARMONY is very interested to connect with the EAPM2018 participants.
