Avicenna Alliance meets with MEPs in Strasbourg

During the European Parliament’s plenary session that took place in the second week of March, Avicenna had the unique opportunity to visit the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France to meet with policymakers and organise discussion about in silico medicine. The Strasbourg Parliament provides a great platform for policy advocacy, given that meetings with MEPs take place during an opportune moment within their policymaking process, namely the plenary votes.

Avicenna managed to secure meetings with four MEPs featuring three different political groups, the Socialists & Democrats, the European People's Party Group and the European Conservatives and Reformists Group, which all expressed to be very much in favour of moving in silico medicine forward on the EU’s policy agenda as a priority for new initiatives in healthcare.

The Avicenna Secretariat is currently in the process of following up with the MEPs, to steer several activities, among which proposing amendments on relevant upcoming files, submitting parliamentary questions, organising a presentation about in silico given by Avicenna during an event in the EP, and laying the foundations for a MEP Coalition on predictive medicine!


The Strasbourg visit has provided a great stimulus for continuing Avicenna’s advocacy efforts at EU level in 2023. Stay tuned for more news soon on this front!
