Simultaneous national scientific advice pilot project: launch of phase 2

The European Innovation Network (EU IN) has launched phase 2 of the simultaneous national scientific advice (SNSA) pilot project. SNSA can be used when an applicant wants to obtain national scientific advice from more than one national competent authority (NCA) at the same time. The format is designed to enhance the quality and consistency of such advice. Following endorsement by the Heads of Medicines Agencies (HMA), phase 2 of the SNSA pilot project will run for a two-year period until the end of 2024. Phase 2 incorporates an optimised procedure to maximise the benefits for both applicants and competent authorities.
