32nd EURORDIS Round Table of Companies Workshop

The impact of the EU regulatory network strategy 2020-2025 on the development of orphan medicines


20-21 October 2021

14.00-18.00 CET


Workshop Description

The European Medicines Agencies Network Strategy to 2025 and  Regulatory Science Strategy to 2025 are forming a comprehensive approach to plan and prepare for the future. This includes preparing the EU regulatory network for the next generation of regulatory activities. In order to do this, four EMA Task Forces have been created on: Digital Business Transformation, Data Analytics and Methods, Regulatory Science & Innovation and Clinical Studies and Manufacturing.

The 32nd EURORDIS Round Table of Companies Workshop will place a strong emphasis on exploring and discussing elements of these task forces, and their impact and importance for developers of rare disease treatments.

This is your opportunity to join us to discuss and gain insights into new methods to analyse data, new sources of data and changes in the way new Clinical Trials are conducted.


This workshop will provide valuable information to its participants with the following objectives:

  • Get insights into the future of the regulatory strategy for data acquisition and analysis
  • Learn about the new EMA task forces established to prepare the regulatory network for modern methods
  • Understand how you can prepare and plan for the future and benefit from the changes
  • Learn how clinical trials will be conducted in the next 20 years with the revision of the ICHE6
  • Understand how patients will benefit from shorter and more innovative clinical trials, more robust HTA assessments, new digital solutions to measure efficacy and how more real world evidence data will help to reduce risk and make decisions more certain
