EPICLUSTER, one of the clusters from the European Brain Research Area project, is organising the workshop: “Accelerating Patient Involvement in European Epilepsy Research” on 6 October 2021.

With the overarching goal of showcasing ways and best practices for bringing people with epilepsy and researchers to work together on common ground, this event aims to unveil the opportunities arising from patient involvement in epilepsy research. The workshop will begin with an overview of definitions, trends, and key themes around PPI and how they can successfully advance epilepsy research. Hints and case histories will lead participants to learn the “why”, “how”, and “what” of patient involvement in research.


• Understanding the potential of PPI in epilepsy research

• Learning how epilepsy researchers can work with people with epilepsy and their representatives

• Envisioning the way forward: how to incorporate patient involvement into epilepsy research so to fundamentally change the way policy-makers, funders, and regulators view epilepsy
