Invitation to diabetes researchers to participate in innovative European project

On 1 April 2008, EURADIA was awarded an FP7 grant from the European Commission (Health-2007-A-2.4.3-5) for an innovative two-year project to guide a Road Map for Diabetes Research in Europe, called DIAMAP.

DIAMAP is a response of EURADIA ( an Alliance encompassing the major European diabetes stakeholder organizations, ensuring contact and credibility with all fields of diabetes research. EURADIA has a unique and high political profile at the European level and has been instrumental in highlighting the need for increased and better coordinated funding for diabetes research. The mission of DIAMAP is to undertake a wide survey of the current European diabetes research landscape from which expert opinion can identify gaps and highlight strengths, to guide a Road Map strategy for diabetes in Europe. It will be led by Professor Philippe A. Halban, Chairman of EURADIA and a committee of leading experts in diabetes research and will include people with diabetes, academic science and industry (with links to the Innovative Medicines Initiative). The Road Map will provide the European Commission, funding agencies, academia and industry with a strategy to address weaknesses and to maximize the strengths and opportunities for the future direction of diabetes research in Europe. The DIAMAP team invites input to the DIAMAP research database from individual researchers (group leaders) and health professionals working in diabetes research. People with diabetes and the public are invited to participate via our interactive website to ensure that DIAMAP is truly centered around the person with diabetes.
