ELPA Educational Days, 27-29 June 2019, Split, Croatia

ELPA Educational days were held in Split, Croatia where 22 ELPA members’ representatives came together to exchange opinions, follow up on ELPA’s work and progress and create a clear vision for the future.

The first day was proposed by company Norgine, when we talked about the importance of social media activities of ELPA members. ELPA members received valuable information and exact steps on how to create their social media image, how to operate their profile and how to communicate in order to reach every part of Europe with their dissemination activities. As per systematically organised agenda the meeting was very easy to follow despite the complexity of the subject. The program was set up by world-class company that works in social media and we are happy that Norgine covered all educational fees, transfer costs and accommodation of the lecturers.

Second day was focused on first step to crafting the new ELPA strategy for the period 2020 – 2023. This is such important step which needed involved all ELPA members. The meeting was very successful and fruitful with numerous innovative ideas on how to make ELPA even better and how to proceed forward. ELPA members agreed that ELPA is not single person, but is a result of all activities. ELPA members agreed very strongly on creating ELPA family of which we all want to be part of and will be proud of its accomplishments. The activities of this day were supported by all companies that support our mission on yearly basis.

Third day started with education about Hepatocellular carcinoma HCC and patient view of the condition. Two patient organizations that wanted to be part of ELPA family presented their organisation. Both organizations were invited to Vienna, but were not able to come due to logistical problems. They were invited to the meeting because they have fulfilled all the necessary criteria to become ELPA member. On this day ELPA decided to include them into ELPA family which from this meeting consists of 31 organisations from 25 countries. We continued with brief overview of ELPA activities in medical research, as we applied to six new Horizon2020 projects.
