The European Vision Institute EEIG

European Alliance for the Promotion of Vision Research and Ophthalmology

Blindness is one of the most feared health hazards in our present society; millions of Europeans are threatened by blinding untreatable eye diseases producing costs of several billion Euros. EVI aims at devising and implementing programs and projects for new therapeutic strategies for eye diseases that are difficult or impossible to be treated presently. Its approach will incorporate the most recent scientific developments of the postgenomic area.

The Importance of EVI

The European Vision Institute should be of enormous strategic importance for the future and is targeted towards more immediate policy objectives of improving the competitiveness of European Research assembling the top institutes together with partners from industry and academia. EVI integrates, conducts and supports research that helps to prevent and treat eye diseases and other disorders of vision. This research leads to sight-saving treatments, reduces visual impairment and blindness, and improves the quality of life for people of all ages.
