Roadmap for Clinical Development of Medical Technology in Europe

The European Forum for Good Clinical Practice (EFGCP) and MedTech Europe have created a joint Working Party aimed at promoting ethical and quality standards for the clinical development of medical technology.

The upcoming EU Regulations on medical devices and in-vitro diagnostic medical devices aim to strengthen the clinical evidence standards for medical technology in Europe. The EFGCP-MedTech Europe working party is organizing a series of events in 2015-2016 to generate in-depth, multi-stakeholder input into the development and implementation of these new Regulations.

Through these events, the EFGCP-MedTech Europe Working Party is actively engaging the full range of medical technology stakeholders, including patient representatives, academics, healthcare professionals, ethics committees, competent authorities, industry, sponsors and CROs.

The Working Party’s Roadmap of multi-stakeholder workshops in 2015-2016 are as follows:


A constructive and energetic year is planned, to put the medical technology sector under the spotlight and generate concrete solutions for the well-being of patients.
