The European Commission is organising this conference to present the results of a pioneering mapping study of successful cooperation projects and its toolkit for practitioners interested in setting up cross-border cooperation themselves.
Aimed principally at professionals in the health and cooperation fields, this event will showcase good practices and creative solutions in cross-border health cooperation, and the challenges that border regions have encountered and overcome. Examples of health cooperation vary from information-sharing, to streamlined patient mobility, to jointly managed hospitals, innovative technologies and eHealth solutions.
Keynotes, panels and workshops/brainstorming sessions will explore priority themes including policy imperatives, patient services (treatments, diagnostic, emergency care), training, investment and other healthcare enablers, as well as the role of innovation and knowledge-sharing across borders.
