Universities Allied for Essential Medicines Europe
Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) Europe is the European branch of an international grassroots movement of students and young researchers, working to ensure that medicines are accessible and affordable around the world, for all who need them.
UAEM aims to (1) promote access to medicines and medical innovations in low- and middle-income countries by changing norms and practices around academic patenting and licensing, (2) ensure that university medical research meets the needs of people worldwide and (3) empower students to respond to the access and innovation crisis.
University scientists are major contributors in the drug development pipeline. At the same time, universities have an avowed commitment to advancing the public good. As members of these universities, it is our goal to hold them to this commitment.
