Euronews has gathered a panel of experts, industry leaders and key players in Brussels to address the issue of how rare disease provision can be advanced in the European Union (EU) in a virtual debate entitled “Innovation in rare diseases: How can Europe be a global leader?

The virtual debate will take place on February 15th from 15.00 – 16.30 CET and can be viewed live on the event platform.

Debate host and Euronews science journalist Jeremy Wilks will accompany the panel as they consider rare diseases and the battle for progress. With the French Presidency of the EU making rare diseases a priority on their programme and the upcoming review of the orphan legislation, the event intends to encourage a debate on how Europe can play a central role in rare disease research and innovation and how this can impact the quality of life of people living with a rare disease in Europe. The panel will tackle questions including how the private and public sectors can work efficiently together and what the future formula for better healthcare should look like.
