    • We have undertaken to assess three MA applications for biotechnological medicines and review applications for clinical trials using the common EU-wide procedure. We have developed expertise to give scientific advice on biological, biotechnological, and innovative drugs as well as novel health technologies.
    • We have become the main centre of drug information for the general public and stakeholders, and by 2022 we provide information in a more user friendly manner.
    • We only collect and process information that can be used for the benefit of public health. We only engage in activities that are essential and contribute to the protection of public health. We know which regulations should be worded more clearly and which should providea wider margin for discretion. Our workload is distributed more evenly and staff members have time available for self-development.
