CORS Conference 2020

Pandemics as driver for regulatory innovation
- regulatory changes in times of disaster

Banner of the conference

The regulatory world is currently under immense pressure, with global expectations to approve the long-awaited cure against COVID-19 as fast as possible. At the same time as the regulatory system is pushed to the limit, it innovates and instigates changes to accommodate fast patient access to treatment. In this year’s conference, we will focus on how pandemics foster regulatory innovation. Themes to be addressed include the use of novel data techniques, such as artificial intelligence to be applied in regulatory decision-making, as well as communication of uncertainties and benefit/risk evaluation of medicines.

How have these been used in time of regulatory pressure? What can we learn from the exceptional circumstances? And what regulatory innovations should we take forward?
