The European Patients’ Academy (EUPATI) is a pan-European Innovative Medicines Initiation focusing on education and training.

The European Patients’ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) (This link will take you away from our website) is a multi-stakeholder programme led and hosted by the European Patients’ Forum (EPF) (This link will take you away from our website) originally established by the IMI-EUPATI project (2012-2017). It is a successful programme that provides education and training to increase the capacity and capability of patients to understand and contribute to medicines research and development (R&D), and to improve the availability of medical information for the health interested public. It does so by conducting its established Patient Expert Training Course and by providing an open-access multilingual toolbox (This link will take you away from our website)
