Challenges and Best Practices in Securing European Funding and Exchanging Knowledge

The DigitalHealthEurope project is organising a webinar for public authorities to discuss the challenges and best practices they face when they plan and secure European funding and exchange knowledge to advance their digital health and care systems. More specifically, the goals of the webinar are to:

• 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.
