Open Academy Schools 2023
19 June 2023 - 23 June 2023
The Open Academy School on Medicines Research & Development is a training programme offered by
EURORDIS, designed to help participants become experts in medicines research and development.
The 2023 edition of the Open Academy Schools will take place in-person from 19-23 June in Barcelona. Schools are delivered in English in a blended format, comprising e-learning modules, pre-training webinars and face-to-face intensive days. Following a review of our training offerings, we are excited to announce a new format for our in-person training.
From 2023, the face-to-face intensive week of the Open Academy School on Medicines Research & Development (formerly EURORDIS Summer School) and the Open Academy School on Scientific Innovation & Translational Research (formerly EURORDIS Winter School) will take place during the same week, incorporating three days of parallel sessions and two days of joint sessions focusing on patient engagement across the whole life-cycle of a medicine. Greater knowledge sharing and networking opportunities will be fostered with both sets of trainees together during the week.
The new format will include off-site visits to research facilities, greater contact time with faculty and EURORDIS staff and the chance to network with fellow patient advocates, supporting each other in learning and practice during the training and beyond.
