Educational Grants for Participation in the 40th Epos Annual Meeting
The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice has undergone some important changes in the last few years.
These changes have meant that all Healthcare Organizations (HCOs) and Professional Congress Organizers (PCOs) globally have taken on a more important role in ensuring greater transparency between the industry and Healthcare Professionals (HCPs).
The MedTech Europe Code of Ethical Business Practice (http://www.medtecheurope.org/industrythemes/topic/122 underwent an important change (applicable as of 1st January 2018) whereby independent medical education has to be supported exclusively by funds through Educational Grants.
This will imply a discontinuation of direct sponsorship of HCPs.
These Educational Grants supplied to support HCP participation Third Party Organized Events, such as the EPOS Annual Meeting, will be provided through HCOs or PCOs.
In response to these changes, the EPOS Annual Meeting and its PCO (OIC) have setup an online platform to manage the Education Grants application process for congress attendees.
This process will be managed by OIC and will be regulated through specific set criteria defined by EPOS and based on the guidelines of MedTech Europe.
If you want to provide grant funding to HCPs to attend the 40th EPOS Annual Meeting in Porto, you should reach out to us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
