Superbugs and Superdrugs 2014

"The Superbugs and Superdrugs conference provides an opportunity to focus everyone's minds on what really matters" - Richard Bergstrom, EFPIA

Last year, the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) launched two new projects through its antimicrobial resistance program, New Drugs for Bad Bugs. These were launched to tackle the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance throughout the EU that is currently the cause of over 25000 deaths in the EU every year and cost the European economy over 1.5billion euro a year.

The EFPIA presentation entitled: The IMI program: Europe’s largest PPP, will explore new models for incentives and the controlled use of new antibiotics as well as tackling the problem of insufficient antibacterial R&D in Europe.

"The Superbugs and Superdrugs conference provides an opportunity to focus everyone's minds on what really matters: we absolutely need to find new effective antibiotics... To succeed in fighting Superbugs we must pool everything we know, and be open to new business models."

Richard Bergström, Director General, European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations
