The survey is taking place within the framework of the IMI WEB-RADR project, which aims to explore the use of mobile technologies and social media to enhance the way we promote safe use of medicines.

It is funded through the Innovative Medicines Initiative, a public private partnership between the European Commission and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations.
