Conference Forum at 10 Downing Street for Transatlantic Innovation Meeting


  • February 10, 2015

  • London, England: The Conference Forum helped organize the first ever meeting at 10 Downing Street dedicated to transatlantic innovation in drug development, patient access and the role of patients and big data. Healthcare policy specialists from Her Majesty’s government joined with a number of senior executives from across the pharmaceutical industry to discuss the central theme of how we can work together to accelerate drug development across boarders and how we can better apply innovation. Other topics included:

    • New models of care
    • The concept of smart reimbursement
    • Efficiency research vs effective research
    • Real world research settings
    • Making research more relevant to patients
    • Access to innovation

    After the meeting, several members of the group attended a tea reception at the Ritz, kindly sponsored by Trial Reach, whom we would like to thank for all their support. The timing of the meeting worked beautifully as it fell the day before the launch of DPharm Europe, designed to find better and more innovative ways of doing clinical trials. If you’ve not been able to make the DPharm Europe event, stay tuned for the 5th annual DPharm US event in Boston, September 9-11, 2015.
