Ensuring Germany’s position as a place of excellent pioneering research where high-quality drugs are developed and produced - this is the overarching goal of the think-tank. Federal Health Minister Hermann Gröhe, Federal Research Minister Johanna Wanka, and State Secretary Rainer Sontowski, Ministry of Economy and Labour, have presented the results of the ”Pharmadialog” in Berlin, together with representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, the scientific research community, and the trade union IG BCE. Professor Rainer Fischer, Senior Executive Director of the Fraunhofer IME, is an active advisory member of the federal think-tank, and helped to shape the current action plan. The aim is to ensure that patients always have quick access to high-quality and affordable medicines, especially with regard to the development of new antibiotics.
