We are pleased to announce that EATRIS has joined the FEAM Biomedical Policy Forum. By becoming the latest member of the Forum, EATRIS is joining leading biomedical organisations, such as Wellcome Trust and Cancer Research UK, in constructively and collectively contributing to shaping future health and research policies through expertise in translational medicine.
What is FEAM?
The Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) promotes cooperation between national Academies of Medicine, Pharmacy and Veterinary Science, or national Academies via their medical division, in the WHO European region; to provide them with a platform to formulate and express their common position on European matters concerning human and animal medicine, biomedical research, education, and health; and to extend to the European authorities the advisory role that they exercise in their own countries on those matters.
What is the FEAM European Biomedical Policy Forum?
The FEAM European Biomedical Policy Forum provides a platform for discussion on key policy issues for the biomedical community. The Forum brings together representatives from academia, research charities, industry, European and national trade associations and professional bodies, regulators, public health bodies, and patient and consumers groups.
How will EATRIS be involved in the Forum?
EATRIS will work with FEAM to:
- Facilitate cross-sectoral discussions – through FEAM Forum public events and internal meetings on issues of common interest with a European dimension.
- Facilitate the exchange of information on specific areas of expertise;
- Share proposals and initiatives on issues of common interest;
- Identify high level speakers to participate in policy events;
- Provide support in communication and dissemination activities related to Forum activities within EATRIS’ channels.
We are excited about this collaboration and look forward to discussions about how we can work together to improve the health of European citizens by promoting a nurturing, creative and sustainable environment for medical research and training in Europe.
