European Vision Summit 2008

The mission of the European Vision Summit is to promote and support vision research in Europe by assessing collaboration potential and maximizing partnership opportunities with existing European organizations and national societies in the field of vision research. A long term goal would be to utilize these efforts to improve the quality of life of those affected by eye diseases on a European and global scale.

Attending the summit, there were 26 delegates representing 24 national institutions and European organizations. The remaining two attendees were from ARVO (Association for Research, Vision and Ophthalmology) and the National Eye Institute in Washington, DC, USA. The structure of the summit included a two-day workshop designed to combine national, European and international perspectives on vision research priorities. These perspectives would the be organized into a strategy paper on how to improve awareness about vision research and increase funding for this field. More specifically, the delegates were asked to divide into sub-groups were given open-ended questions that prompted discussions. Lastly, each sub-group was asked to present their “harmonized” opinion on the proposed questions to the entire summit.
