MEPs & Stakeholders join forces to call for European leadership in health research

An open letter to the European Commission signed by 48 Members of the European Parliament and a large number of health stakeholders (including BioMed Alliance, where EAS is a member) calls for strengthened leadership that addresses silos in health research. The letter was published on 9 July and highlights the value of biomedical research while stressing the need for a more coordinated European approach to health research.

MEP Dr. Petra de Sutter (GREENS/EFA, Belgium) initiated the letter, and the BioMed Alliance office supported her and her staff in finalising and promoting it. The letter argues that the COVID-19 crisis demonstrated that a coordinated response to health challenges requires prior planning and a long-term commitment based on a comprehensive vision. This can be driven by a credible body, in the form of a European Health Research Council.

The full letter is available here.
