ECIBC is supported by two working groups composed of medical doctors, epidemiologists, researchers and patient representatives who joined the project on a voluntary basis upon public calls launched in 2014.

The members have signed declarations on confidentiality and commitment, and they submit annually a declaration of interest relevant for the project.

Members

The two working groups supporting ECIBC are:
