Dear Colleague,

We would like to tell you about the DIA Patient Fellowship programme for the 28th Euromeeting, in Hamburg on 06-08 April 2016.

As you already know, DIA is an independent, neutral, non-profit organisation and established the DIA Patient Fellowship Programme in 2006 to facilitate the participation of patient advocates at the annual DIA EuroMeeting. This programme was created as a response to the growing need for patient representation in the medicines’ development process.

The DIA Patient Fellowship Programme is designed to: 

-                  Develop, strengthen and support patient collaborations with policy makers, industry representatives, public health authorities, academia, and other healthcare stakeholders. 
-                  Improve alliances between patient groups and other healthcare stakeholders. 
-                  Increase understanding of issues concerning the promotion of patient-centred healthcare, biomedical research, and drug development.
-                  Provide a platform for sharing the best practices, stimulating cooperation and enabling a two-way dialogue across the entire global healthcare community. 
-                  Enhance the capacity of patient advocates to respond to changes in medicines development and health care delivery. 

-                  Involve patients in the EuroMeeting programme, roundtable discussions and networking events. 

This year we will offer up to 15 fellowships for patients, this includes:

-                  Free 3-day entrance to the full Euromeeting

-                  Accommodation and travel expenses covered

The applications are open to anyone affiliated with a patient organisation, who has been involved in education and/or advocacy-related activities. The participant should be familiar with activities related to clinical trials, medicine development, HTA, regulatory affairs etc. The business language of the conference is English, therefore the participants must be able to understand scientific content in English in order to network with other attendees with ease. 

Attached you shall find a document providing more details on eligibility and how to apply for the DIA Fellowship programme.

We kindly ask you to communicate this opportunity to your network and anyone else who may be interested in participating (please note that the application deadline is 31st October 2015).
