We are non-profit organisation. Both the foundation and its collaborators work without seeking or accepting funding or sponsorship from the pharmaceutical industry or any other.
We are free from economic, political, and religious influences. In 2013, wishing to achieve higher transparency and diversity, we spun off the Pontificia Universidad Católica.
We assess the evidence using the highest methodological standards in place today, coordinating the contributions of more than 800 collaborators from around the world.
Epistemonikos works in collaborative projects and is funded through software development, consultancy, and the sales of subscriptions to the platform L·OVE. We have received income from The Cochrane Collaboration, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Chile’s Ministry of Health (MINSAL), the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, the Institut de Recerca de l’Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, and others. An important part of the tasks involved in our delivery are done pro bono by our collaborators.
We aim at total transparency about our work and values. The table below reports situations of our members that could be related to conflicts of interest.
