European Network of Centres for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance
Coordinated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), the European Network of Centres for Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance (ENCePP) brings together expertise and resources in pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance across Europe.
ENCePP aims to strengthen the monitoring of the benefit-risk balance of medicines, primarily by facilitating the conduct of high quality, multi-centre, independent post-authorisation studies (PAS) with a focus on observational research.
EMA set up the network in 2007. It consists of public institutions and contract and research organisations, working in collaboration with the European medicines regulatory network. Participation in ENCePP is voluntary.
