EU Matchmaking Event on the Development and Production of COVID-19 Therapeutics


Building on the experience of the EU Task Force for Industrial Scale-up of COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics, the European Commission remains promoting cooperation among actors in the EU supply chain to ensure that available therapeutics are produced in sufficient quantity as soon as possible. For this reason, the Second Virtual Matchmaking Event on COVID-19 Therapeutics is in preparation! 

The event

On the 29 and 30 November, the European Commission is organising the Second Virtual Matchmaking Event on COVID-19 Therapeutics together with the Council of European BioRegions (CEBR), the European Cluster Alliance (ECA) and the ECCP.

The goal

The aim of this event is to accelerate: 

1. The development of new and repurposed medicines for COVID-19 therapeutics
2. The development of medicines used to treat the symptoms of COVID-19
3. The production of disposable materials (e.g. single use systems), ingredients and raw materials required for the manufacture of medicinal products

Furthermore, it will also aim to mobilise the EU pharma manufacturing capacity for the production of medicines to treat and prevent COVID-19.
