The BioMed Alliance monitors EU Health research policy and related policies, informs its members about European developments and conveys the position of its members to policy makers and stakeholders. Health research is the foundation of healthcare, and medical societies and the researchers & healthcare professionals that they represent play a key role in European health research. We strive to address bottlenecks and call for more support and coordination in European Health Research. To this end, we have organised workshops & events, published statements and engaged in a dialogues with policy makers and other health stakeholders.
