Meeting of the AEBR Taskforce “Cross-Border Health” on 8 November 2013:


The Taskforce CB Health of the AEBR is revived!


During the AEBR Annual Conference on the 8th of November 2013, the taskforce came together under the new chair Mr. Jan Oostenbrink of the EUREGIO. 


Current cross-border projects from different regions were presented, e.g. hospital cooperation between Lower Austria and South Bohemia, Emergency care between North Portugal, Galicia and Castilla Y Leon, cross-border health care exchange between Germany and Switzerland in the region of Basle, cross-border interdisciplinary house of physicians in the Eurodistrict Regio Pamina (DE-FR) and cross-border prevention, euPrevent|EMR, in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (DE-NL-BE).


Due to the fruitful discussion about these projects, the participants decided that it would be useful to see if the Taskforce could hand in a project proposal in one of the new EU funding calls. The former project proposals and the strategy of the Taskforce will be used as a baseline. In March or April 2014, the group will meet again for a day to work out some new ideas for further cooperation between interested AEBR members.


The Taskforce is determined to make this a successful revival! Every region that is interested to be part of this revival of the taskforce cb health is welcome. Please make yourselves known to the AEBR secretary and you will be invited to all future meetings. We are looking forward to it!


Kind regards,


Jan Oostenbrink (EUREGIO)
