The CEPS Platform contributes to the development of quality research in the NPIs sector, more subject than other sectors to skepticism and drift. The platform aims to:
1. Bringing together actors in non-drug interventional research (iCEPS CONFERENCE)
2. Encourage the development of quality intervention studies on NPIs (NISHARE)
3. Identify NPIs (NPI-Ontology)
4. Facilitate bibliographic research of NPI interventional studies (Motrial)
5. Identify NPIs Researchers and Research Units (NIRI)
6. Identify NMI Evaluation and Monitoring Paradigms
The resources of the CEPS Platform are freely accessible. They result from the collaborative work of experts, practitioners and users. Everyone can contribute to ongoing projects. The academic platform is organized in the form of a Scientific Interest Group.
The CEPS platform is supported by public research funds (eg Europe, State, Occitan Region, Montpellier Metropolis), research agencies and donations. Its governance integrates practitioners and patients. Its management is ensured by the University Paul-Valery Montpellier.
