Webinar: Patient Engagement on Medicines Research & Development

Join us for a webinar about patient engagement in the process of research and development of medicines on Thursday, September 6 from 18:00 to 19:15 CET.


Four European patient organisations (EPF, EATG, EURORDIS and Alzheimer Europe) and a research foundation (SDJ) invite you in a discussion about what patient engagement is, why this is important, its potential benefits and how it should look like. We also aim to explore how to make patient engagement possible for patients who may have more specific needs such as people with dementia and children and young people living with a medical condition.


This webinar is for patients, carers, patients’ representatives and community groups from all disease areas.


If you are interested in this important topic and want to learn more about patient engagement across different patient groups, please register for this webinar here:


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
