The Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) is the umbrella group of Academies of Medicine, Medical Sections of Academies of Sciences, Academies of Veterinarian Sciences and Academies of Pharmaceutical Sciences. FEAM promotes cooperation between national academies and provides a platform to formulate their collective voice on matters concerning medicine, health and biomedical research with a European dimension. Its mission is to extend to the European authorities the advisory role that national academies exercise in their own countries on those matters.
