The Alliance for European Diabetes Research (www.euradia.org) wishes to draw attention of the media and freelance journalists to its next press conference, near Frankfurt on 26 November. In 2008 the alliance began a two year survey to identify gaps and highlight strengths to devise a strategy for diabetes research in Europe (DIAMAP, www.diamap.eu). The alliance includes the major European diabetes stakeholder organisations and drug companies. EURADIA has been instrumental in highlighting the need for increased and better coordinated funding for diabetes research.
