The ELPAT platform was initiated with the aim to establish continuity in European communication on 'Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of Organ Transplantation (ELPAT)', after several ad hoc conferences had been organised in the last two decades. ELPAT aims to facilitate and structure the European research area in this field of science. It is now an official body within the European Society for Organ Transplantation.
