EMEA:Road Map 2015

After announcing the official appointment of Guido Rasi as new executive director, the EMA management board also endorsed the implementation plan for the agency’s ‘Road map to 2015’ in a press statement released Oct. 7, 2011.

The implementation plan provides information on how the vision outlined in the road map can be developed, and has a strong focus on the operating efficiency of EMA’s core business activities over the next five years. Conducting itself in the framework of current and future legislation is fundamental to all of the agency’s activities, but, in addition, the road map will optimize performance in three strategic areas: addressing public health needs, facilitating access to medicines, and optimizing safe and rational use of medicines.

The press release also indicates a degree of sensitivity to the current economic climate, stating that the road map will be implemented gradually through annual work programs up to 2015.
