DIA Europe, a member of the PARADIGM International Liaison Group, held its annual conference in Vienna in early February. I quickly forgot the sun glinting on the Danube and biting cold when the impressive programme commenced. Structured around seven tracks concerning medicines research and development, the overarching theme that prevailed at conference sessions was change, its realities, its impact and management. I was fortunate to be able to attend the conference courtesy of one of PARADIGM’s industry partners, MSD, and with the IMI-PARADIGM project in mind, I focused on sessions related to patient engagement.
