Antilope Handover Workshop/Conference

The Antilope network will come to an end in January 2015.

To cap two years of hard work, the project will convene key stakeholders, decision makers and eHealth experts for its final event, a “handover workshop”, on 29 January 2015 in Ghent, Belgium.  We invite interested parties to join us to hear about Antilope’s key outcomes; learn how countries, projects and leading experts adapt Antilope’s approach to standards and interoperability; and get to know various EU projects and initiatives that will carry Antilope’s work forward (hence the “handover”).

The Antilope handover workshop will review project results and deliverables, assess the impact of Antilope recommendations from at least four Member States, and discuss in a roundtable with new EU-funded initiatives how the Antilope results will be used, refined, and further disseminated to advance eHealth interoperability. To ensure that this handover will benefit from input from many stakeholders, Antilope invites:
  • Antilope consortium members
  • European initiatives and projects promoting eHealth interoperability
  • eHealth experts, policymakers, procurers, academics, industry
  • and other interested parties
Participants will get the opportunity to interact face to face with EU officials, policymakers and eHealth experts, and to learn first-hand about the European eHealth interoperability agenda.

The event takes place on Thursday, 29 January 2015, 09.00-17.00, in the Ghent University Hospital Auditorium in Ghent, Belgium.

Participation is free and open, but seats are limited.
