Forum: ‘Health Research in a Connected and Participative Society’
9 June 2017, Brussels
The European Commission's Scientific Panel for Health (SPH) is a science-led expert group based on the provisions of the Horizon 2020 Specific Programme, which is tasked with helping to achieve better health and wellbeing for all.
The Panel's main roles are to provide foresight and overall vision and strategy, as well as to identify bottlenecks to innovation and propose solutions in the area of health and biomedical research.
The Scientific Panel for Health has set out a vision for the future of health and biomedical research including input received during the 2016 forum 'Better Research for Better Health' organized by the European Commission and the Scientific Panel for Health.
From further stakeholder's consultation important topics were identified that will be the focus of the next forum to be organized with the European Commission on June 9th in Brussels, 'Health Research in a Connected and Participative Society'. The forum will in particular address the participation of society in health research and policy, and the synergies between health research and health care.
The SPH wishes to build an ambitious future for health research in Europe. The forum with the European Commission is an opportunity to participate in the debate to which you are warmly invited.
