The IMI Diabetes Platform :Collaborative approaches to overcome key bottlenecks on the way to novel therapies

A state-of-the-art flyer titled "The IMI Diabetes Platform" was released together with the colleagues from the two other IMI diabetes calls, IMIDIA and DIRECT.

The flyer is designed to give both good visibility to each single consortium and at the same time a good understanding of those aspects of IMI diabetes research that together constitute one of the most holistic discovery approaches in diabetes so far.

The IMI diabetes flyer highlights unique selling points and addresses those with a special interest in IMI diabetes projects, e.g. academia, pharma, the EC and other stakeholders like country organisations or member state groups, clinicians, patients, economists, national authorities as well as patient organisations.

The flyer was first presented to a broad public audience at the 2012 EASD annual meeting in Berlin via the EASD information booth and SUMMIT EFPIA participant stands at the exhibition.
