Executive Committee

Who is part of the Executive Committee?

A minimum of 2 positions on the Committee will be reserved for patient representitives, 2 for academia and 2 for industry. It is suggested that Committees adopt a 3+2+2 composition or a 2+2+2 composition giving the patient chair a casting vote. In selecting their Committee, an ENP should be mindful of the tripartite partnership which EUPATI embraces. The Committee can revise the composition of the Committee at any time, based on a consensus vote, providing that there is always a majority of positions reserved for patient and academic representatives. A maximum of 10 members should sit on the Committee at any one time.
