Nephrology and Public Policy Committee propositions to stimulate research collaboration in adults and children in Europe

Nephrol Dial Transplant. 2019 Sep 1;34(9):1469-1480. doi: 10.1093/ndt/gfz089.


The strengths and the limitations of research activities currently present in Europe are explored in order to outline how to proceed in the near future. Epidemiological and clinical research and public policy in Europe are generally considered to be comprehensive and successful, and the European Renal Association - European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) is playing a key role in the field of nephrology research. The Nephrology and Public Policy Committee (NPPC) aims to improve the current situation and translation into public policy by planning eight research topics to be supported in the coming 5 years by ERA-EDTA.

Keywords: acute kidney injury; big data; cohorts; guidelines; registry.
