The purpose of this work package is to coordinate and facilitate the future harmonization of professional development programmes for stakeholders in pharmaceutical medicines research. We will do this by assessing the state of the art in terms of currently available continuing professional development programmes, creating a registry of what is available, and identifying gaps and synergies. The central registry and resulting analysis will provide a resource that can be used by IMI E&T topics and future call topics to develop CPD programmes that can be applied throughout Europe and that facilitate the mobility of professionals in pharmaceutical medicines research, both geographically and between academia and industry.
