The past years have seen a growing involvement of patients in research, not as research subjects but as research partners. The other talks in this session will present in particular some of the national efforts to involve patients in research. This talk will focus on the international aspects. Building on the experience acquired when co-leading several international initiatives, the talk will address some of the specific difficulties but also strengths inherent to patient participation in international projects.
