EFORT – in parallel with its stance on ethical orthopaedics, and in the interests of transparency and patient health – has published a Sponsorship and Collaboration Policy.

This document seeks to address many of the likely industry concerns that may arise in relation to compliance and the most productive and ethical use of any industry funding in collaboration or partnership with EFORT.

Any such industry investment in EFORT is understood to be fully transparent, compliant and to the benefit of all patients within the European orthopaedic and traumatology community irrespective of the nature and detail of the collaboration between such an investor and EFORT.

We thank those that support us through the annual congress, fellowships, unrestricted grants and other educationally driven activities.

The EFORT Educational Partnership Programme (EEPP) has been created for you, our industry partners and collaborators, to have additional opportunities outside the 3 days of the annual congress and thus the ability to interact and exchange with our O&T community and surgeons across the whole year.

Choose the service, budget and solution most appropriate to your own marketing strategy and needs.

EFORT strives to consolidate its status as leader for unbiased science with regards to the Continuous Medical Education (CME) and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of health care professionals in the fields of orthopaedics and traumatology.

EFORT believes that partnership with the business community and other third party commercial providers can have a beneficial impact on European and ultimately global health promotion, with respect to reducing the burden of illness and complications arising from orthopaedic and trauma related disease and injury.

It also recognizes the significant resources that the private sector and others can bring to EFORT to support the goals and achievements of the EFORT mission and thus contribute towards the welfare of the European orthopaedic and traumatology community.

In aspiring to and respecting this principle, EFORT guarantees independence of scientific content in its entire range of educational products. Irrespective of the level and nature of support, any industry involvement will always be clearly stated and acknowledged on any occasion should that partner have contributed financial support – be it towards any form of overarching educational programme stream (e.g. Webinar series), logistics or technical development.
