The European Vision Institute EEIG (EVI) creates a new legal entity based on Community law to facilitate and encourage cross-border co-operation in vision research. Its major objectives are to conduct and support research, training, health information dissemination and other programmes with respect to blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight and the special health problems and requirements of the blind and visually disabled. EVI aims to foster centres in the EU in capacity building for innovative projects, to increase the flexibility, attractiveness and competitiveness of research careers, especially for young researchers. In addition, EVI will serve to co-ordinate activities with patient organisations and to build a pan-European platform for clinical trials.
