DigitalHealthEurope Webinar: Challenges and Best Practices in Securing European Funding and Exchanging Knowledge

DigitalHealthEurope organised a webinar for public authorities to discuss the challenges and best practises they face when they plan and secure European funding and exchange knowledge to advance their digital health and care systems. The webinar provided an overview of the latest EU funding programmes relevant for implementing digital health and care. It also presented the twinning approach to exchanging knowledge and collaborating with other public authorities across the EU.

More specifically, the goals of the webinar were:

  • To better understand the challenges public health authorities experience when applying for European funding related to advancing their digital health and care systems and solutions,
  • To share best practices and considerations that public authorities typically have and encourage the sharing of best practices,
  • To derive a summary of guidance for funding applicants, and possible recommendations for the relevant funding bodies.
