Regulatory Affairs (RA) professionals tend to start their career in the regulatory area either by chance or by a very informed decision. Either way, they tend to lead quite successful careers, either in the regulatory field, sometimes in another field by using skills and competences mastered in regulatory in other areas. However, not two regulatory careers are the same. Regulatory affairs professionals are needed now more than ever: technology advances are shaping the development of medicines and targeted treatments at a very rapid speed, while patient accessibility and use of medicines remains a key priority for health systems in Europe. Proficiency in medicines regulation is required by many stakeholders to address these challenges. This Workshop intends to showcase some of the most common careers in regulatory affairs and hopefully inspire young professionals in the area to develop to their full potential. Speakers from regulatory affairs in the industry, regulatory authority, trade association and academia will outline their initial career experiences and the positive impact that regulatory affairs had in their professional lives. A panel discussion will also take place to advise and help young professionals on their first steps in career development.

Registration is complimentary but mandatory to receive a pass to enter. Registrations cannot be processed on the day.
