Advanced Therapies Summit

March 14, 2018

The Advanced Therapies Summit is a multi-stakeholder, interactive forum that seeks to exchange views and make recommendations on how best to advance the ATMP sector in Europe. The conference brings together the top executives, public policy makers and other members of the advanced therapies community to highlight the major achievements and explore the main challenges experienced along the path from discovery to delivery of transformative – and even potentially curative – therapies. This year’s program will feature interactive discussions and networking opportunities with policy makers leading the evolution of the ATMP framework in Europe and executives from leading companies in the ATMP sector.
