The project HSREP aimed to identify, evaluate and improve the contribution of Health Services Research (HSR) to the health policy process at national and European level, and thus help optimize the delivery of health care services to European citizens.

Through a working conference in 2010 as well as various other activities, priorities were identified in five main HSR areas and then summarized in a policy brief, final report and scientific articles. A selection of priorities was later used in the 2012 call of the EU Seventh Framework Programme.

After successful finalisation of the project, the HSR network continues to organise activities in order to strengthen the European research community as well as its contribution to policy making. A second working conference is being held as satellite event to the European Public Health Conference in Malta 2012, addressing how to improve international comparability of HSR.
