Challenge

Millions of euros are invested into biomedical research at European universities and public research institutions each year, with close to 700 million euros of European public funds already pledged to COVID-19 research. Despite the public health system in most European countries, life-saving medicines bear exorbitant prices, posing a huge access challenge which strongly impacts the lives of those who need them the most.

Solution

Universities play a crucial role in biomedical research and drug innovation and students are in a unique position to engage with their universities to push for health justice and equity. UAEM Europe empowers a generation of young people on campus to hold their institutions accountable to their social responsibility and to improve their knowledge stewardship through socially responsible licensing frameworks.

Long-Term Impact

UAEM believes that universities and publicly funded research institutions can and must be part of the solution to the access to medicines crisis by promoting medical innovation in the public interest and ensuring that all people, regardless of income, have access to essential medicines and other health-related technologies. Universities have a key opportunity to safeguard publicly-funded innovations, ensuring they are adequately priced and distributed in a socially-responsible manner.
