The consortium project "European Patients‘ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation" (EUPATI), funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative, will provide scientifically reliable, objective, comprehensive information to patients on medicines research and development. It will increase the capacities and capabilities of well-informed patients and patient organisations to be effective advocates and advisors in medicines research, e.g. in clinical trials, with regulatory authorities and in ethics committees. More about the Patients' Academy
Alongside its patient expert training programme, the patient-led European Patients’ Academy (EUPATI) has set out to inform the European patient community on how new medical treatments are developed. More than 150 representatives from patient organisations, academia, industry and regulatory affairs met in Warsaw on 2 April 2014 to plan the next stage of an ambitious European project aimed at increasing the knowledge of the lay public about the development process of new medicines. The input received at the workshop will help shape the project's strategy. Here you find the press release, our Twitter wall, as well as presentations and movies shown during the EUPATI 2014 Workshop.
