Final conference: VulnerABLE: Improving the health of those in isolated and vulnerable situations
Brussels, 7th November 2017
The final conference took place in Brussels (Belgium) on Tuesday 7 November 2017. The aim of the conference was to present the pilot project outputs and disseminate them across a wide spectrum of relevant stakeholders, including those at the local level. More specifically, the objective of the conference was to focus on the results that are critical for policy agendas; act as a platform for broader reflection on the issues at hand, taking stock of the overall results and defining aspirations for the future; and, provide an opportunity to explore the findings from a comparative perspective, drawing on both qualitative and quantitative information, and inviting input from a wide range of stakeholders. Approximately 200 participants attended the conference, including experts from EU Member States, EU Institutions, non-governmental organisations and projects working with vulnerable and isolated groups.
