EMA UPDATE: GUIDANCE ON THE PILOT FOR SIMULTANEOUS NATIONAL SCIENTIFIC ADVICE

EMA has issued an update to the guidance for applicants for the pilot simultaneous national scientific advice (SNSA) process, which is now live. The changes do not look to be anything more than formatting edits (please correct us if we are wrong). So perhaps they are trying to increase the uptake. The process itself is well described in the document which can be found under this link https://lnkd.in/d76bDmG

EMA NEWS: VIRTUAL EMA MEETINGS UNTIL END OF APRIL 2020

In order to limit international travel and the number of visitors going to the offices, and to reduce the risk of an infection with the novel coronavirus for delegates, visitors and staff, EMA has advised that all meetings of EMA committees and working parties will be held virtually until the end of April 2020. In addition, stakeholder events hosted by EMA which were planned to take place at the Agency’s premises in Amsterdam in March and April will either be held virtually or postponed until later in the year. Participants of these meetings will be informed directly about this decision. EMA’s plans are being continually reviewed. The dedicated webpage on COVID-19 is updated as the situation develops. https://lnkd.in/dx4cjB3
