The Paediatric Committee (PDCO) is the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) scientific committee responsible for activities on medicines for children and to support the development of such medicines in the European Union by providing scientific expertise and defining paediatric needs.
PDCO aims to improve the health of children in Europe by facilitating the development and availability of medicines for children (aged 0 to 17).
The European Commission has launched a selection procedure to appoint the members and alternates representing patient associations and clinicians to the PDCO. Successful candidates will be appointed for a 3 year mandate starting 1 August 2020. The application deadline is 25 October 2019.
SIOP Europe would be more than happy to write a letter of support for interested and experienced candidates from the community. Please send your CV and your motivation letter to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
