Expert Panel on effective ways of investing in health

Meetings

The Expert Panel members meet regularly in the plenary meetings and in meetings of the drafting groups, which are set up for the purpose of drafting specific opinions. Public hearings are organised before the opinion is finalised to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to share their views on the draft opinion. To promote the work of the Panel and to raise public awareness on evidence-based policy-making on country-specific and cross-country knowledge in the field of health the conferences/workshops might be organised.

Plenary meetings

The Expert Panel members meet regularly in the plenary meetings organised 4-5 times a year.

Drafting/working groups

After the Expert Panel receives a mandate from the Commission to draft an opinion, it sets up a drafting/working group, composed of members of the Panel with requested expertise. In case additional, specific expertise/support is needed, external expert(s) might be involved in the work of the group.

Public hearings

Commission, in line with the principles of transparency and openness in engagement with stakeholders, organises public hearings to give interested parties an opportunity to share their views and provide specific comments on the draft opinion before it is finalised to ensure the highest quality of the opinions adopted by the Panel. 

Conferences/workshops

To promote the work of the Panel and to raise public awareness on evidence-based policy-making on country-specific and cross-country knowledge in the field of health the conferences/workshops might be organised.
