On the 5th of January, COVend together with two other EU-funded projects COVIRNA and ENVISION organised a webinar on “Addressing unmet clinical needs, practices and patient outcomes: the impact of EU-funded projects”.
The COVend and ENVISION projects were represented by Dr. Jan K. Kloka and the COVIRNA project by Dr Yvan Devaux, Luxembourg Institute of Health. Panelists were Ed Harding, The Health Policy Partnership; Dr Timo Brandenburger, University of Dusseldorf; Matilda Ersson and Britt Sandberg, AMAZONA. Finally, the webinar was joined by Kelly Woods, who presented the European Open Research platform.
The webinar emphasised the importance of patients’ involvement in all research projects and securing sustainable funding for research and innovation initiatives. Each project shared successful practices on how to respond to the expectations of clinicians at the same time as patients’ needs. There were also highlights on the Open Research Platform tool and its contribution to the promotion of innovations and, indirectly, their potential access to the market.
The recording, the presentations and a full report will be available shortly on the COVIRNA website.
