Living Organ Donation in Europe

Objective

The project on living organ donation in Europe is a coordination action that aims to 1) establish an inventory of living donation practices in Europe, 2) explore and promote living donation as a way to increase organ availability and 3) develop tools that improve the quality and safety of living organ donations in Europe. This action aims to achieve broad European coverage with a specific focus on new EU Member States. It includes 11 participants from 10 countries. It draws upon the support, knowledge and network of the European platform on Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of Organ Transplantation (ELPAT) and the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT). To fulfil its objective this project contains 2 scientific research packages. The first package focuses on living unrelated donation practices in Europe. The second package focuses on legal restrictions and safeguards for living donations in Europe. The remaining three work packages focus on the coordination of the work, dissemination of the project results and the organisation of meetings. 13 deliverables will result from this project, including an implementation plan to guarantee European-level dissemination of the accumulated knowledge, information and recommendations. By doing so, the end-goal is to exchange best practise and effective organisational models to promote and safeguard living donation in Europe.
