A network of EUPATI National Platforms has been established across Europe to help people on a national level get more involved. There are currently 18 National Platforms set up, in varying phases of evolution. Please find your National group here and learn more about what they do and how you can connect with them.
Based on the IPPOSI model, EUPATI National Platforms are national networks of health partners. Comprising initially of patients, academia and industry representatives, membership is open to government health departments, regulatory bodies, policy and decision makers, healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists), as well as medical journalists. Members explore national patient education and involvement challenges, working together to identify training opportunities and to support patients to become actively involved in R&D.
IPPOSI coordinates the network of EUPATI National Platforms in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
In Ireland, the EUPATI National Platform is supported by IPPOSI (i.e. all IPPOSI members are members). The National Platform is led by the IPPOSI CEO and includes the nine Irish EUPATI Fellows and other national patient, academic and industry representatives. Regular meetings explore untapped opportunities for cooperation/dialogue/partnership in medicines R&D in Ireland, and decide on how to use the EUPATI course and EUPATI Toolbox to enhance national patient education.
