The history behind RAPS Euro Convergence with Sabina Hoekstra-van den Bosch

RAPSRAPS' Latest | 01 March 2023 |  By 

Sabina Hoekstra-van den Bosch has been there since the beginning.

Hoekstra-van den Bosch, a RAPS Board member and RAPS Euro Convergence 2023 planning committee member, explains the history behind this crucial meeting and traces the evolution of RAPS Euro Convergence from its beginnings as a meeting in Brussels.


"Before Euro Convergence there was the RAPS Europe Meeting, as we called it," she says. "It started very small as a meeting in Brussels, and we were in Brussels because then the members of the European Comission could quite easily join us. That was the first one, I think in 2016."

RAPS Euro Convergence 2023 will focus on uniting global regulators, notified bodies, competent authorities, key opinion leaders, patient interest groups, and industry partners to explore varying perspectives about the current regulatory landscape and MDR/IVDR rollouts. Across three days of interactive discussions, the hope is to achieve a confluence among stakeholders that accelerates innovation.
