Irene Norstedt: Europe’s need to work together
Dr Irene Norstedt has overseen the launch of the biggest European Commission healthcare initiative of recent years, the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI).
IMI has the objective to meet the key bottlenecks that face getting new therapies to the market and focuses precisely on key technical challenges. In helping build the IMI, Dr Norstedt has faced the key issues in European healthcare and is perfectly placed to talk about the Europe’s overall need to work together and work effectively in a healthcare climate of increased demand, increased cost and no easy answers.
Irene Norstedt is the Head of Innovative Medicines, Health Research, European Commission.
