The share of the pharmaceutical sector in the Belgian economy is large. According to the organization pharma.be the sector employed 35,711 people in 2017 and our country exported in 2017 for a total value of 40.5 billion euros of medicines and vaccines to the whole world, which is about 10% of Belgian exports.

While in many sectors sustainability, transparency and a social reflex are more and more explicitly defined as an objective, it was difficult to find vision statements about a social, transparent or ecological pharma of the future in Belgium. This series is the result of a study of 'best practices' from abroad about social and transparent pharma.

A working grant of € 1.700 allocated on 19/09/2017.
