    "Non-drugs" products - cosmetics, medical devices, food supplements, natural products, are essential elements of people's health, duly recognized and covered by EU legislation. And the interest that the industry has been dedicating to them, as seen by its current diversity and sophistication, has been manifested by an encouraging recognition of its importance, translated by the increase in its consumption and preference, even in the context of economic crisis. This dynamic is not independent of the regulatory changes that have been taking place in large markets, promoting good practices and the improvement of safety and consumer satisfaction conditions. For companies in the sector, it is imperative to have human resources capable of meeting these challenges. As a continuation of the School that the Lusófona University has been creating in these matters, this master's degree now appears, designed to train professionals who are at the forefront of applied knowledge, in the fields of quality, safety and efficacy assessment, always in the light of current regulatory guidelines. Thus, we hope to promote innovation in companies and the economy, investing in the creation of specialized skills, technically consolidated, according to the most demanding standards of competitiveness. At the same time, this master's degree provides the opportunity for a successful career in a market as sophisticated as it is global.
