CSEMnext in Allschwil: Swissmedic's new innovation-promoting framework

Swissmedic is creating an innovation-promoting framework by bundling all the activities to do with this category of medicinal products in a new division. The aim is to give patients the fastest possible access to effective, high-quality and safe ATMPs. Philippe Girard, Head of Licensing at Swissmedic, will explain the background.

Swissmedic wants to create an innovation-promoting framework and consciously take on a new role in which they make it easier for small companies and start-ups also to access their knowledge and experience. The law can delay innovation. Because for many new technologies, the appropriate regulation is still lacking. As an internationally recognised and extensively networked authority, they are familiar with the legal framework. They can actively make an important contribution here by making their knowledge available and showing what requirements need to be fulfilled for a licence to be granted or an application approved. Patients should not have to wait for a law to be passed. Philippe Girard, Head of Licensing at Swissmedic, will explain the background.

Venue: this event will take place at the Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area, Hegenheimermattweg 167A, 4132 Allschwil.

Language: this event will be held in English.

Date & time: come & meet us on Monday, June 26th 2023, from 5 a.m. til 6:30 a.m.
