EPPOSI 21 Strategy Renewal Meeting

EPPOSI 2021 

A new strategy of renovation and renewal for patients, science and industry 
The European Platform for Patients’ Organisations Science and Industry - EPPOSI - has been working hard in 2015 to come back from a difficult phase in which it could be argued that the organisation lost its way and suffered financial difficulties. 
Under new management fully supported by the current and former presidents, vice-presidents and board members, the organisation is regaining its direction and voice in the health policy in European policy making and in the Member States. This document is both a description of where we are and where we are going and an invitation to (re)join us in rejuvenating the organisation. In our new strategic period, EPPOSI would like to ensure that we coordinate a platform for patients, ICT, pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, investors, private and social insurers and healthcare providers that operates in the best interests of patients. 
As a part of our continuing strategic development and membership outreach, we would like to invite you to a meeting of interested stakeholders to help shape the future of the platform: 
Location: EPPOSI offices 38/40 Square de Meeûs, 1000, Brussels, Belgium Date: 9th December from 9.30am to 12.30pm 
Please RSVP to [email protected] or phone: +32 470834056 






EPPOSI 2015: Recent and Current Projects

  • Rapid Health Technology Assessments and HTA/Access to Market/reimbursement
  • Biobanks
  • Digital ehealth, mHealth, Telemedicine Interoperability, Standardisation and Governance
  • Self-care Barometer
  • Neo-natal Screening

Looking forward to the next strategic period of 2016 to 2021, the new EPPOSI team have been laying the ground for working with interested partners and members to develop our strategy. In order to achieve our aim of placing patients at the heart of healthcare and health data management, we have been connecting with medical industry, other patient groups and ICT companies in the first instance, and plan to build new relations with insurers and healthcare providers in the near future. Anyone who is interested in placing patients at the heart of their healthcare is welcome to start a dialogue with EPPOSI.

Concrete Next Steps
Given the vital importance of IMI and other EU / industry funding partnerships in shaping and defining the future of European pharmaceutical and medical devices research, EPPOSI has been analysing all the current and future calls within IMI and Horizon 2020. In collaboration with multiple stakeholders, we would like to identify and prioritise future areas of work for the organisation that may or may not be based around these specific calls. Future areas of work, for example that current board members are interested in developing for EPPOSI focus on health data governance, and the challenges of chronic and rare diseases. The EPPOSI team is looking forward to welcoming you to our meeting on the 9th December and working with you to help EPPOSI regain its place at the heart of patient centred health technologies in Europe.
