The Academy works with the European research community for the best possible future medical research and patient health.
We engage with the European Union, EU member states and other national medical academies on everything from cross-border careers to data-sharing and ensuring patients benefit from research. We aim to grow our European partnerships and extend the reach of the Academy’s policy work.
We work closely with colleagues in other national academies across Europe, as well as through medical academy collectives such as the Federation for European Academies of Medicine.
We helped the Federation for European Academies of Medicine secure funding to recruit more staff and carry out a strategic review, in turn leveraging investment from other European medical academies.
We work with other national medical academies on specific projects and partnership areas, for example collaboration with Germany's National Academy for Sciences Leopoldina on patients with multiple serious diseases and a joint symposium on addiction with France's Académie Nationale de Médecine.
We collaborate closely to support the mechanisms for science advice in EU policy through contributions to SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) via the European Commission’s Scientific Advice Mechanism.
