Our Mission

As a unique alliance of NGOs and healthcare companies, Euradia’s mission is to improve the lives of people affected by diabetes both now and in the future, through advocacy of diabetes research in Europe at the highest political and societal levels of influence, by improving coordination of European diabetes research and by shaping the allocation of resources for such research through increased awareness.


Who we are: EURADIA e.V. is an alliance of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and healthcare companies working for diabetes research. The NGOs include European academic and clinical researchers, healthcare professionals and patient groups.

What we do: We provide a platform for all those undertaking research to work together to benefit the wellbeing of people with diabetes, through advocacy for increased funding and improved coordination of diabetes research in Europe.

A Brief History of EURADIA

EURADIA e.V. was informally established in 2003 as the European Research Area in Diabetes. It began as a unique collaboration of NGOs and healthcare companies concerned that the European Commission had not included diabetes in the Sixth Framework Research Programme (FP6).

This successful collaboration has grown in number of stakeholders and was formalised legally in 2007 at the County Court of Duesseldorf, Germany.

EURADIA UK is an independent entity with a secretariat in the UK that has successfully applied to the UK Charity Commission for charity status in 2013.

The Trustees of EURADIA UK are independent of the Executive Committee of EURADIA e.V.
