Support Open and Ambitious Trade Policies
Trade has long been one of Europe’s strengths, enabling economic growth across the continent, building links with allies and partners across the world, and contributing to greater resilience in global downturns.
Upholding Strong Intellectual Property (IP) Protection
Intellectual property protection is the lifeblood of innovation. Patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyright, and other incentives such as regulatory data protection (RDP) enable the development of new technologies and support a robust, knowledge-based European economy.
Innovate and Adapt the Regulatory System

Since its formation in 1995 the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended the authorisation of over 1,400 medicines. However, in order to keep pace with pharmaceutical breakthroughs as well as remain competitive and respond to global health challenges, it is vital for Europe’s regulatory system to continue to evolve.
Harnessing the Power of Data and Digital Technology
Data and digital technology have the potential to improve access to innovative medicines and to contribute to a healthier future for European patients.
