Malta Enterprise has announced the launch of the first Malta Medical Cannabis Symposium.
In November 2019, Malta Enterprise signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the prestigious McGill University from Montreal, Canada. The Memorandum of Understanding aimed at establishing closer research collaboration between Malta Enterprise and McGill University in the field of medical cannabis.
This partnership facilitates collaboration on different elements with McGill University including the access to knowledge and research carried out at McGill University. The agreement is also intended to help Malta Enterprise bridge the skills gap in the pharmaceutical industry by offering top-up courses to existing professionals in the cannabis industry.
Malta Medical Cannabis Symposium
As part of this collaboration, Malta Enterprise is very proud to announce the first Malta Medical Cannabis Symposium. The Symposium will be held between 23 and 24, April, and will be hosting three separate events aimed at different audiences.
All the content will be provided and delivered by McGill University, which will fly in 12 highly acclaimed academics to Malta specifically for this event. The first event, which will be a full day event on 23 April will be aimed at professionals working in the industry or having a specific interest in medical cannabis. The events on 24 April will include a morning seminar for Students and an evening event for healthcare professionals.
