During the course of the conference and especially in the plenary sessions we would like to address the following questions:
1. What are the possible developments of the European social model and its core values?
2. After the first 20 years of an EU health mandate what should be the EU’s role in health and health systems in the next 20 years?
3. In preparation for the next legislative period and the implementation of its Europe 2020 Growth Strategy, how will the current policy frameworks and instruments have to be used or reviewed in order for the EU to fulfill its role in promoting, protecting and restoring the health of its citizens?
4. As European citizens demand more value for money in health care, what can the EU contribute to improving the performance and efficiency of Member States’ health systems?
We would like you to think about these questions prior to the conference and there will be opportunities to express your views onsite so these can be discussed at the closing plenary on 3rd October at 1p.m.
If you need inspiration please have a look at the special Eurohealth Gastein issue.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Bad Hofgastein very soon!
