Launching the IP PACT: Our approach to Intellectual Property with patient and societal benefit at its core

26th April 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 26th April 2099 @ 1:00 pm

Medical innovations driven by the biopharmaceutical industry have played a fundamental role in helping people live longer, healthier lives. As the global population’s health needs become increasingly complex, it is ever more essential that we research and develop life-saving medicines and vaccines to meet these challenges.

Intellectual Property (IP) has been central to great scientific advances and for ensuring that patients have access to this innovation. IP helps foster long term investment to benefit patients – today and tomorrow.

Join members of the innovative biopharmaceutical industry in marking this year’s World Intellectual Property Day on 26 April 2021 (12:00-13:00 CET) for the launch of the IP Principles for Advancing Cures and Therapies (IP PACT). The IP PACT is an unprecedented declaration affirming the industry’s strong commitment to putting patients at the heart of their approach to IP.
