Health workforce

Improving workforce planning and forecasting

In 2011 the Commission funded a feasibility study on EU level collaboration on forecasting health workforce needs, workforce planning and health workforce trends. Based on the outcomes of the feasibility study the Commission funded a joint action on workforce planning and forecasting under the 2012 Health Programme. The joint action started in April 2013 and has 30 associated partners and 34 collaborative partners from 28 European countries. More information on the joint action can be found on: and in this leaflet.
