Conference | Eleventh EDCTP Forum

7-9 November 2023
Paris, France

The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) is an innovative partnership through which the European Union (EU) and countries in Europe and sub-Saharan Africa are working together to alleviate the health and economic burden of infectious diseases in Africa.

The EDCTP Forum is a biennial event that provides an international platform for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research addressing the burden of poverty-related and neglected infectious diseases in sub-Saharan Africa and the capacity development and networking activities that support this goal.

The EDCTP Forum attracts diverse stakeholders including representatives from research institutions and universities, the larger scientific community, health care providers, governments, regional bodies, regulators, civil society, and public and private research and development partners.

The multidisciplinary nature of the Forum attracts over 600 representatives from different regions and research fields, providing an excellent opportunity for networking. You will be able to share experiences, highlight key activities of your institution, organisation, or company, and promote new initiatives to a select audience while contributing to EDCTP’s mission and conference goals.
