Thought Leadership

At Incisive Health, we pride ourselves on our insights and are not afraid to give our opinion. Our team is passionate about what they do: interrogating the latest policy developments and understanding what they mean for patients. This is underpinned by our values: expert, challenging, exceptional, collaborative and ambitious.

In 2020 we launched a new series of breakfast events: the Incisive Health Morning Club. The Morning Club is a unique opportunity for experts to collaboratively shed light on key EU health policy topics, including those that are less debated in the public sphere and that could be further prioritised by policy makers. With this platform, Incisive Health gives a voice to patients, healthcare professionals, industry representatives, academia and other key stakeholders on topics such as the future of brain health policy in Europe, the revision of the In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation and the need to increase plasma donations across Europe. Feel free to contact us to discuss a topic that you would like to see included in our 2021 Morning Club calendar.
