ELPAT is strongly committed to principles of diversity and inclusion and promotes balance in geographic and professional representation. Members of traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

Since February 2008, ELPAT has been an official section of the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT), focusing on ethical, legal, and psychosocial aspects of organ transplantation. ELPAT aims to integrate and structure this field of science by bringing together European professionals. These experts range from (bio)ethicists, philosophers, lawyers and psychologists to clinicians, physicians, sociologists, anthropologists, policy makers and criminologists. For more information about ELPAT and its activities, please visit the ELPAT webpage.
