ELPAT is a European platform that brings continuity and progress in European research and dialogue on ''Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of organ Transplantation''. Since February 2008 ELPAT is an official section of the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) on ethical, legal and psychosocial aspects of organ transplantation. It aims to integrate and structure this field of science by bringing together European professionals. These experts range from (bio)ethicists, philosophers, lawyers and psychologists to clinicians, physicians, sociologists, anthropologists, policy makers and criminologists. ELPAT currently consists of 200 experts from more than 25 European countries, that convene in 7 working groups.
