The European Patients’ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) is a pan-European project implemented as a public-private partnership by a collaborative multi-stakeholder consortium from the pharmaceutical industry, academia, not-for-profit, and patient organisations. The Patients' Academy was started, developed and implemented as a flagship project of the Innovative Medicines Initiative, and continues to be led by the European Patients’ Forum. EUPATI has already trained over 150 patient experts on medicines development, clinical trials, medicines regulations, health technology assessment. Additionally, EUPATI offers and maintains the Toolbox on Medicine Development (+3 million users - April 2020), and coordinates a network of national platforms for patient advocates.
We focus on education and training to increase the capacity and capability of patients to be valuable contributors to medicines research and development by working with patients and the stakeholders they collaborate with, and also improve the availability of objective, reliable, independent, patient-friendly information for the public. We do not educate about disease-specific issues or therapies, but about the process of medicines development in general. Indication-specific information or specific medicine interventions are beyond the scope of European Patients’ Academy and are the remit of health professionals as well as patient organisations.
