European Network of Centres for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance

Special interest groups

ENCePP special interest groups (SIGs) are created within the network based around a shared interest in particular topics. The role of these SIGs is to lead and advise the ENCePP Steering Group, on the activities of ENCePP in specific areas. This enables to better focus and progress discussions on topic-related issues, thus expediting the generation of specific outputs.

Special interest groups have no maximum membership and are open to interested representatives from any ENCePP centre or network.

Special interest group chairs report on their group’s activities to the ENCePP Steering Group and the ENCePP Plenary.
