IMI’s EUPATI project delivered a wealth of resources to support and educate patients who wish to become more involved in medical research and drug development. These include the patient expert training course, the online multilingual toolbox, and the network of national platforms. The goal of EFOEUPATI is to develop a viable business model to ensure the viability of these resources in the medium to long term. Among other things, the project will create a patient education and engagement portal that will host relevant information and resources for patients and other stakeholders. This will ultimately replace the current EUPATI website. EFOEUPATI will also strengthen the coordination and impact of the existing EUPATI national platform network by promoting collaboration and knowledge exchange.
