The success of health actions mainly depends on an effective funding and a good financial management. In the current programming period 2014–2020, the health focus is present through funding instruments such as ERDF & ESF (ESIF), HORIZON 2020 (H2020) and the EU Health Programme. The multitude of funding and financial instruments for health actions makes it difficult to obtain a comprehensive overview that highlights the differences between the funding options. Particularly the question of correct procurement creates high levels of insecurity.
Projects that engage health workforce, active and healthy aging, health at the workplace, cost-effectiveness and sustainable care, health infrastructure, access to healthcare and the reduction of health inequalities, innovations for health solution, e-Health and telemedicine, cross-border care and cooperation between Member States and the education of health professionals are in the focus of the European funds.
Practitioners from the public, private and research sectors as well as SMEs are confronted with a range of challenges when applying for European funds. Thorough knowledge of where to get funding and financial instruments and how to comply with all obligations that need to be fulfilled for a proper application is key to success. Being aware of the characteristics of high quality proposals further strengthens the position of prospective beneficiaries. Finally, correct application of procurement law will assure your funding will be granted as well as protect you from financial claims by the European Commission.
Therefore, take the opportunity at our European seminar to receive first-hand information from experienced practitioners in the field. Network with health and funding experts from all Member States and learn from best practice examples to manage successful health actions and to make full use of available EU funding.
