    Also thanks @Jo Best. Any chance they might team up/collaborate with the OMF?

    I'm not there @A.B. I'm just catching up on Twitter. I'm sure there'll be a report or write-up.

    Do you mean European ME Alliance (EMEA) or European Parliament? EMEA has good direct links with OMF via UK founding member org and Chair of EMEA, Invest in ME Research. :)
    ETA: I was thinking mainly of the international conference/colloquium events but other member orgs of EMEA also have direct links with OMF I believe.
    ETA more: EMERG (European ME Research Group) was formed by EMEA in 2015 and some of those researchers are also involved with Euromene, and in turn they meet together with the researchers from other countries around the world at the 2-day Biomedical Research Colloquium prior to the 1-day public Invest in ME Conference - www.investinme.eu

    I'm assuming he was speaking in the context of his position on the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). I'm sure there'll be a report of the meeting in due course.

    Posted in Invest in ME Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/5804522506/permalink/10154654997212507/

    After the Invest in ME Research Colloquium and Conference events in London the charity will host the European ME Alliance (EMEA) AGM. This year there will be news of a new European member being added to EMEA.
