Welcome to the website of the Alliance
for Biomedical Research in Europe

The Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance) was founded by four major European academic medical societies namely the European Cancer Association (ECCO), the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD).

Since December 2010 the BioMed Alliance is officially established as a non-profit association and registered in Belgium. There were several reasons for founding the BioMed Alliance including the growing concerns by European scientists that we are losing our international competitiveness due to insufficient funding, the complicated and excessive administrative burdens on scientists applying and/or receiving EU support, promote the influence of active scientists on European research plans and their implementations as well as concerns over the fragmented European science funding in the health area.

The Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance) is a unique initiative representing 22 leading research-oriented medical societies that include more than 400,000 researchers across Europe. The BioMed Alliance is committed through its actions to promote excellence in European biomedical research and innovation with the goal of improving the health and well-being of all European citizens.
