EMA seeks closer links with academic groups

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has developed a framework and action plan to try to foster tighter working relationships with academic researchers, including mutual learning and training.

The EU regulator's executive director Guido Rasi notes that academic groups "play an important role in helping the EU medicines regulatory network keep abreast of the opportunities and challenges brought by science, be it in the context of the development, assessment or safety monitoring of medicines."

The framework aims to raise awareness of the mandate and work of the EMA, help academics translate their discoveries into novel methodologies and medicines, and ensure that the EMA gets "the best scientific expertise and academic research" to support its activities, says the EMA.

Having closer ties with academic experts will help accelerate the adoption of scientific advances in the development of regulatory science, it continues. The agency has also set up a dedicated page on its website for academia.
