Digital assets including website

Delivery of the digital assets that are key to efficiently communicate about the Project.

Review existing methods for monitoring and evaluation patient engagement

This report will describe the outcomes and impacts of patient engagement at different points in the medicine development lifecycle.

Report on final Open Patient Engagement Forum

This report will gather the proceedings of the final Patient Engagement Open Forum that due the the COVID-19 has transformed into an online event through the M28 to M33 of the project and that will allow a better implement the following final actions of the project: restructuring the PEOF2020, with several online webinars, workshops and masterclasses; and maximising the relevance of results through better engagement with stakeholders around the tools and to foster their uptake.

Document with recommendations on how to develop the stakeholders’ required capabilities to implement effective patient engagement in R&D.

Ethics Expert Panel brief activity report

This report includes a monitoring of the activities carried out by the EEP during the first 12 months of the project.

M&E frameworks for assessing outcomes and impact

Final report for transfer to WP4&5.

Patient engagement toolbox

Platform containing capacity building tools on how to implement patient engagement in R&D processes. The toolbox will include all WP4 deliverables as well as templates and checklists. Change of type of deliverable from DEC (Websites, patents filings, press & media actions, videos, etc.), to R (Report), as this new format will allow us to further explain the PE toolbox and the PARADIGM tools as well as to define the required IT specifications for hosting the toolbox and the requirements and approach for hosting the PARADIGM tools.
