ESMI joined BioMed Alliance

Oct. 20, 2016


The Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance) is a non-profit organization representing leading European research and medical societies uniting more than 400,000 researchers and health professionals.

The BioMed Alliance provides a platform to speak with a unified voice and interact with EU policy makers on key topics for European biomedical and health research.

It has addressed important issues for biomedical and health research in the EU such as: changes to the EU Data Protection Regulation, the EU research budget and European Citizens’ Initiatives that could hamper research. BioMed Alliance was also a major partner during the elaboration of the final Horizon 2020 proposal, including the creation of a Scientific Panel for Health (SPH).

Convinced that objectivity and the transparency of medical professional organisations are critical to carrying out their mission and to gaining public confidence a Code of Conduct was phrased.


The BioMed Alliance and the ESMI are convinced that the use of ‘one voice’ for issues of common interest is the way to get our voice heard.


Looking forward to working together to further advocate the interests of our members. Thanks to all BioMed Allinace members for this excellent initiative!
