The European Medicines Agency (http://www.ema.europa.eu/ema/) is hosting a workshop on access to clinical trial data and transparency on 22 November 2012 from 12.30 to 17.00 in meeting room 2A at the Agency’s offices in Canary Wharf, London, UK.
Proactive publication of clinical trial data – discussing the way forward
The European Medicines Agency has announced that it will proactively publish clinical trial data and enable access to full data sets by interested parties. A number of practical and policy issues need to be addressed before complex data sets can be made available.
The Agency is organising a workshop on 22 November 2012 to listen to the views, interests, and concerns from a broad range of institutions, groups and individuals. Results from the workshop will help the Agency define the modalities of proactive access to clinical trial data, in a way that best serves patients and public health in an open and transparent forum.“
