Financial policy

  • The Foundation does not have an aim for profit.
  • The capital of the Foundation is formed by subsidies, gifts, bequests and other income. The Foundation receives financial support by means of sponsorship/ license income from commercial parties active in the development of drugs or medical devices. The Foundation requests a modest contribution to the costs of the development of the instruments when these are used in work that will not result in scientific publications in the public domain. No contribution is expected from EQ-5D use by non-commercial parties.
  • In 2021 the Board of the Foundation approved the current investment policy. Please click here[insert URL] for the current version.
  • The Foundation’s capital is used to finance scientific research studies and necessary software, an annual scientific congress and other scientific meetings and other costs of the Foundation, such as personnel costs.
  • The members of the Board will not be remunerated for their activities.
