  • The organisation of educational events including conferences, workshops and seminars at the national, regional and international level;
  • The preparation, translation and distribution of publications;
  • The preparation, organisation and contribution in courses, e.g., electronic educational platform and ENERCA, and;
  • The preparation and organisation of educational courses for patients and parents, e.g., the Expert Patients' Programme and Capacity Building
