The IMI-EFOEUPATI project was launched on 1 September 2018 and will run for 24 months, until August 2020.
The budget received from IMI JU is €362,242.50.
Ensuring the Future Of EUPATI aims to ensure optimal exploitation and sustainability of the core achievements of the IMI-EUPATI Project 2012-2017: Patient Expert Training Course, the multilingual public Toolbox, and the EUPATI National Platforms Network. It is imperative that these pillars exist in the medium- and long-term to address the growing field of patient engagement. The project is co-lead by the European Patients' Forum (EPF) and Bayer.
- Develop a viable sustainability / business model for the medium-long term future of EUPATI activities.

The European Patients’ Academy on Therapeutic Innovation (EUPATI) is a multi-stakeholder programme led and hosted by the European Pa- tients’ Forum (EPF) originally established by the IMI-EUPATI project (2012-2017). It is a successful programme that provides education and training to increase the capacity and capability of patients to under- stand and contribute to medicines research and development (R&D), and to improve the availability of medical information for the health interested public. It does so by conducting its established Patient Ex- pert Training Course which has trained more than 150 patient ex- perts to date and by providing an open-access multilingual toolbox that has served more than 1.6 million users around the world to date.
