[Marketing Medium] Consumer Choice Center releases manifesto for post-COVID innovation

“One issue that many EU countries need to improve on, is fast and easy access to medicines.

Yaël Ossowski, Wiener und stellvertretender Direktor der weltweiten Verbraucherorganisation Consumer Choice Center sagt dazu: “Viele Rechtsexperten sehen die Folgen dieser Pandemie als höhere Gewalt.

“Judges are asked to evaluate what constitutes sound science or pass that along for juries to evaluate.
