Public Affairs

Expertise in health and innovation, Business Ethics and public interest: a new vision of public-private interactions

The arrival of breakthrough therapeutics and technologies with high impact on healthcare systems (in particular digital solutions), the transformation of healthcare facilities and care pathways, the modernization of healthcare and policy governance, the increased complexity of regulations and market access for health products, the centrality of ethical and reputational issues, are all challenges that healthcare stakeholders are facing today.

To exist in public debates, healthcare stakeholders – industry, biotech, medtech, start-ups, medical professions, trade unions or associations – must now develop a different, more partnership-based approach, to govern their relationships with public authorities and collectively propose new relevant ideas to their institutional stakeholders.
