EUPATI (European Patients Academy on Therapeutic Innovation)
The 'European Patients Academy on Therapeutic Innovation' aims to educate patient advocates and lay public about therapeutic innovation.

IMI will fund this patient-led consortium to develop the 'European Patients' Academy on Therapeutic Innovation' (EUPATI). From 2012, the academy will educate patient representatives and the lay public on personalised and predictive medicine, design and conduct of clinical trials, drug safety and risk/benefit assessment, pharmaco-economics as well as patient involvement in drug development.

EUPATI will provide educational material in six European languages targeting eleven European countries.


Eu2P (European Programme in Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology) establishes a European private and academic partnership to fill in training needs in pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology for specialists and non-specialists. Eu2P has developed an educational curriculum ranging from PhD and Master degrees to Certificates with a high level of excellence including innovative and interactive e-learning tools. First courses have started in 2011.
