European Centre for Guidelines Development

The EDF has launched in 2018 the European Centre for Guidelines Development in collaboration with Prof. Alexander Nast from the Division of Evidence-Based Medicine, Department of Dermatology, Charité University, Berlin. The Centre is supported and advised by renowned experts in the field. The project aims to foster high-quality guidelines through harmonized methodologies that ensure alignment with current gold standards, under a systemized structure and with a continuous update process. The governance includes a Board of Directors, with EDF having a majority status. The project is already sponsored by Pharma companies, national societies of dermatology and by an initial important fund provided by EDF.
