The Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance) is the result of a unique initiative of leading European medical societies that together include more than 400,000 researchers and health professionals.
The BioMed Alliance was created in 2010 to gather strength across different disciplines and areas in biomedical and health research at European level. It is now comprising 28 leading societies across all medical disciplines, with former UEG President Colm O’Morain on the Board of Directors and the UEG Research Board sending representatives to the BioMed Alliance General Assembly and relevant task forces such as on academic clinical trials.
The alliance promotes excellence in European biomedical research with a broad network covering EU governance and policymakers and is thus another pivotal partner to leverage UEG´s voice for the need for more research funding for digestive health. UEG is endorsing the BioMed Alliance Recommendations for the EU´s 9th Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (FP9): Calling for more robust EU support for health research, through increased funding under FP9 and the development of a long-term vision and strategy involving the creation of a European Council for Health Research.
