Remember the petition that asks the EU to fund biomedical research on ME? It will be discussed at the meeting of the Committee on Petitions on October 3rd 2019 in Brussels! It is scheduled for discussion at around 11:05 CEST.
Francis and Evelien have been working on this project for over a year and they will both try to attend the meeting.
Once the petition has been introduced by the Chair, Evelien will be allowed to give a short speech. Then the European Commission will take the floor. After that the MEPs will discuss the petition. The decision is made by the Members of the Committee, live in public, right after the debate.
This will be an important day! The outcome is still uncertain, but our goal is to move forward!
