Over and above our networking, horizon scanning (and Tweets that follow) and major project, CEMPaC (remember – www.Cempac.org) here are our top seven activities for the start of 2020:
- AP4HE : in November we mentioned that we have become knowledge partners for this ‘All Policies for a healthy Europe’ project (https://healthyeurope.eu/ ). On Jan.16th we attended a group strategy meeting to plan out the project’s activities over the coming year, in particular to focus on three main elements of the European Commission’s policies: the European Green Deal, the Digital data space and the Economy of Well-being. More details of the programme will follow.
- Chrodis+: this Joint Action finishes in 2020 and we’re involved in writing-up the results of Work Package 7 which piloted the quality matrix created in the previous JA across six regional sites
- Podcast series 2: as advised at the end of last year this EHFF/FEASTA collaboration is in its next phase. We’ve now agreed a provisional programme and the first podcast will be released in the next few weeks.
- next Newsletter: following the success of our first new-style Newsletter, the next edition is underway, and we hope to publish before mid-February.
- EHP: the European Health Parliament, EHP is in its fifth iteration and is an annual series of events, sponsored by Johnson and Johnson, which brings 60 young health professionals together over four meetings to work on policy proposals they then present to senior EU policy makers at the Parliament (infographic here) on this year’s programme. We’ll report back on our support for the programme as it progresses (next plenary February 4th).
- Self-care summit 2020. Copenhagen March 26/7: following on from Self-care Europe week last November, as a member of the Self-care Europe group (scie.eu ) EHFF will be active with others in convening this Nordic centred summit (draft programme to shortly appear in our ‘Events’ section)
- Metaphorum discussion group: As previously advised, following the Metaphorum annual conference in Huitzen in November, we’ve created a work group between EHFF and Metaphorum to discuss tackling the problem of how groups dedicated to societal change work together across their traditional boundaries. It’s a kind of holy -grail project, but stimulating nevertheless to work with like minds coming from different areas of expertise.
