Involving patients and public

Promoting the relevance and benefits of clinical research through active involvement of patients and their representatives


Patients are the most important partners in clinical research. Their contribution to the success of research projects is crucial, and their perspective on the benefits of research is central. Opportunities to help shape new research projects are therefore becoming increasingly important. The term "Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)" refers to all activities that enable the opinions, views and experiences of those affected to be incorporated.

We are committed to the active involvement of patients, their relatives and caregivers, patient organisations and all interested parties, and support research groups in their efforts. At the same time, we provide those who wish to get involved with the necessary expertise and bring them into contact with researchers.
