Full Members

Full membership is open to companies, universities and technical colleges that are active in the fields of pharmaceuticals or healthcare, provided that they meet the following preconditions:

a) The company must regularly conduct multinational market research and / or business monitoring, and exercise an international market-research function

b) The company must furthermore conduct medical research and development on a regular basis in the pharmaceutical, medical-technology or diagnostic fields, or be involved in the international marketing of products in these fields

c) The university or technical-college institution must be active (and have a professorship) in the pharmaceuticals field or in the development of medical equipment and diagnostic procedures or in market research in the healthcare field.

Provided that the aforementioned conditions are met, the ownership of the said companies need not necessarily affect membership. It is thus possible for more than one full member to have the same owner.
