On 17 May 2021, the European ME Coalition (EMEC) became an officially registered foundation in the Netherlands!
This step will make sure we stand strong and hopefully leads to new opportunities that will take our advocacy to the next level. EMEC will stay focused on the same mission at the European level, to make sure that scientific research on ME/CFS will be adequately funded through the EU’s research program Horizon Europe. We will try to achieve this goal in close contact with patient organizations in the Member States.
We will continue to operate without asking for donations and the members of our group, who are all patients or caregivers, will remain doing their work unpaid, on a voluntary basis.
