Chairperson: Katrien Reynders, Board Member, HollandBIO


14:05pm Presentation: The Updated European Ecosystem for Cell and Gene Therapies – What Does the Future of ATMP Policy and Access Look Like?

  • The proposed changes to the pharmaceutical package impacting the attractiveness of the EU as a place for investment and launch: 
  • Key changes that will impact the future of ATMPs in the EU include: 
  • A revision of the GMO framework, hospital exemption provisions, and EMA structure represents an important update to the regulatory system; 
  • The changes to the incentive structure, including a UMN concept and ‘launch conditionality’ will be particularly acute in the case of novel therapies like ATMPs. How will that impact investment decisions as well as pricing and launching considerations? 
  • The current state of play of the EU HTA and its impact on ATMP launches in the EU; ATMPs will be subject to the EU HTA in less than 2 years – is the EU ready
