Op het programma staan de verschillende initiatieven over patiëntenparticipatie in klinische proeven met als concreet voorbeeld hiervan de lopende pilootprojecten waarbij patiëntenvertegenwoordigers worden betrokken bij de evaluatie van klinische proeven.

Industry Insiders on the Future of Biopharma/Biotech in Belgium

With over 200 biopharma/biotech companies operating in Belgium (8-10% of all such companies in Europe), the Belgian biopharma/biotech companies account for 16% of Europe’s turnover and almost 10% of R&D expenditure.

Universities played and are playing a key role in technology transfer with strong collaboration between their various departments resulting in intensive exchanges of knowledge and ultimately driving further development in the sector.

Communicating Toxicology: What’s the Risk ?

With no less than about 20,000 dangerous substances registered at the EU level (ECHA, 2018), the issue of risk assessment and risk communication has evolved to an increasingly challenging task during the last decades. Although vast efforts have been invested in the regulation of physical, chemical and biologically hazardous agents, it should be acknowledged that full knowledge is limited to a relatively small part of an exponentially growing market. Further, the risk perception of stakeholders not only depends on the intrinsic hazard or risk in the first place, but also -and in particularly- on external factors, such as media and lobbying, which place the facts into different contexts.
