Mc Gill University, in collaboration with Malta Enterprise, will be organising the first Medical Cannabis Symposium in Malta between the 23rd-24th 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 symposium will be held as part of the Memorandum of Understanding which Malta Enterprise signed with the prestigious Canadian university, McGill University in November 2019. The Memorandum of Understanding is 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 industry.  


McGill University, a public university founded in 1821, is one of Canada's best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the leading universities in the world.
