Montevideo Stakeholder workshop

Building bridges in Personalised Medicine between Latin America-Caribbean and Europe

This event is planned as an interactive workshop to discuss and analyse the situation of PM in LAC countries (challenges, barriers and needs) and options for strengthening collaboration with Europe. The workshop will serve as a first step to start building links with countries interested in collaborating in PerMed and joining the ICPerMed Initiative.

The workshop aims gathering LAC and EU actors from different stakeholder groups: Health Policy Makers & Funding Agencies, R&I Policy Makers & Funding Agencies, Regional/international organizations active in health research and policy, Universities and research organizations, Hospitals, Scientific associations and networks, researchers, Public-Private partnerships, Industry and Patient Associations and other Civil organizations.

Panel presentations and discussions lead by experts from LAC and EU, together with small-group discussions and final agreement on conclusions and recommendations on how to best approach the policy dialogue and alignment activities planned in the EULAC-PerMed project will be held.

Around 60-70 participants from LAC and EU countries will take part in the workshop, which arises as a networking opportunity for international collaboration.
