TOPRA Annual Symposium 2021 - update

Following extensive feedback from working party members, speakers and delegates, this year’s Symposium will now take place online only. The decision was driven by continuing uncertainties around COVID-19 variants, vaccination levels, potential surges and travel restrictions.

Last year’s successful virtual event demonstrated that the Symposium experience could be replicated online to great effect.

Feedback from delegates last year highlighted that there were advantages to this format and many of the valued networking aspects were retained. Apart from opportunities to exchange regulatory knowledge and ideas, the flexibility of fitting sessions into the working week without the need to travel and more access from delegates across the world were viewed positively.

The core reason for attending the Symposium is, as always, the programme. This year’s theme is particularly relevant – Revolution in Regulatory Affairs: How the pandemic is shaping regulatory science. This year, our Agency partner is SUKL, which have helped shaped the programme and provided a Central and Eastern European perspective as part of the wider European regulatory update and focus.

We thank SUKL as well as the huge range of specialist regulatory professionals who have come together to create an exceptional programme in exceptional times.

Take this opportunity to plan and book your place with certainty.

Why attend?

  • Access the latest information and insights from the most comprehensive EU regulatory affairs programme
  • Europe's only regulatory conference where you can meet regulators from around the world
  • Network with innovators and opinion leaders in the healthcare regulatory arena

Symposium CollageAbout the Symposium

Held yearly since 2004, the TOPRA Symposium is the premier conference in Europe dedicated to healthcare regulatory affairs, with a programme encompassing the topics most relevant to those working in healthcare regulatory affairs, whether for human or veterinary medicines, medical devices or IVDs.

The Symposium is open to anyone interested in regulatory affairs and gathers delegates, speakers and exhibitors from industry, regulatory bodies, support services (consultants, recruiters, translators) and connected areas (patient groups, charities, healthcare professions, legal firms, universities, notified bodies and the media).  More
