The Biomedical Alliance is committed to working with other stakeholders in the health and research sectors to achieve common objectives and to exchange knowledge. We believe that stakeholders in the health and research fields can achieve more when they cooperate as we all have a clear interest in fostering research and innovation and improving healthcare.

Cooperation is limited to those areas where parties have a clear common interest and objectives do not contradict one another.

The BioMed Alliance cooperates and interacts with many actors in the EU policy field, some examples are listed below:

EU Institutions
