The Understanding AI webinar series will present complex technical content in an understandable and engaging way to equip the European patient community with the necessary know how to shape and present the patient perspective on a new and increasingly important policy topic that is becoming an important field of policy discussion both at European and national level. These webinars are open to EPF Members only.
