Treffen der AGEG Task Force "CB Health" am 8. November 2013

Veranstaltungsort: Liège (BE) and Maastricht (NL)

Jan Oostenbrink, EUREGIO

The AEBR Task Force Cross-Border Health launched its work in 2007, coordinated by Eric Jakob - at that time Regio Basiliensis.

During the last years the TF has in particular realized the following tasks: organization of several cross-border conferences (in Basle) on cross-border health and European developments in the field of health care. Furthermore, the TF has been actively involved in the preparation of an INTERREG IV C tender.

As in 2012 Eric Jakob has professionally moved on, some months ago the AEBR Executive Committee has entrusted EUREGIO (Gronau) and Euregio Meuse-Rhine with the coordination of the Task Force Cross-Border Health. These two organizations have asked Ms Brigitte van der Zanden and Jan Oostenbrink to coordinate the TF.

On the occasion of the upcoming AEBR Annual Conference ( taking place in Liège from 6 to 8 November 2013, a meeting of the TF Cross-border Health is planned on Friday afternoon, 8 November 2013. This meeting is currently being prepared.

Your are cordially invited to join this meeting and to contribute, together with Euregio Meuse-Rhine and EUREGIO, to the further realization of this TF. It can be stated that the success of AEBR and its Task Forces depends on active participation of border regions and other committed stakeholders. During the workshop a possible input from your side with new, innovative and cross border ideas on health with an added value within the EU is highly appreciated.

We would be grateful if you could let us know, if possible by 25 October, if you will participate in this meeting.

Please do not hesitate to contact Jan Oostenbrink ( in case of questions.
