BTG is dedicated to promoting excellence in patient care and providing education information to the medical community. We demonstrate this commitment by awarding grants for continuing medical education (CME) events and independent research.

Our Global Grants Programme is not influenced by BTG’s commercial interests and grants are connected to topics, events, societies or independent research and must meet certain objectives that are relevant to BTG’s business and/or therapeutic classes.

We support educational activities that are objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous and ensure all these events are beneficial to the medical or scientific community, and advance patient care.

We operate according to the highest standards to ensure our Educational and Ancillary Research Grants, in addition to donation practices, comply with applicable laws and regulations. At BTG, we also recognise guidelines such as those promoted by the ABHI, ABPI, PhRMA, AdvaMed and Eucomed. For accredited education grants, at a minimum, requesting organisations must meet the principles and standards outlined by national (e.g. USA ACCME) or regional (UEMS-EACCME) accrediting bodies.
