YEAH Project - Final Event

Lunes, 13 Diciembre, 2021

After two years of intense work, the YEAH consortium will share the findings and outputs of the YEAH project, setting the base for the future education of young people to be involved in health science projects. 

Patients involvement in clinical trials with drugs and medical devices in the paediatric setting still is a fragmented experience. Training will provide to young people the right knowledge and expertise to change this paradigm to perform clinical research and to swift it to a patient-centric approach. The project partners of the YEAH worked in the delivery of a training programme to provide to facilitators of Young Person's Advisory Groups, professionals of Patient Organizations and teachers of High Schools the right tools to ensure that young people is ready to be involved in a more participatory research ecosystem, where their rights of active participation in health science are the pillar of any project.

On Monday December 20th17:00 – 18:00 CEST, you are invited to join with other interested stakeholders to the online end meeting and discussion of this project. 

Next to several presentations on the approach and tools that have been created during the project’s lifetime, we will promote an interactive discussion where the consortium will answer questions from the audience. 

Please register your interest here.
