ELAN workshop

[Cross-Border eHealth Symposium]  [MEDTEL seminar]  [CeHR poster workshop]

Currently there is a big interest expressed by both Latin American and European partners to actively participate in networking activities regarding collaboration. CeHR offers this opportunity by organizing such a meeting in the context of the international event that's taking place in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany, from December 2 to 5, 2007.

Therefore, the "ELAN" (European & Latin American Network) event has been arranged taking place the last day of the CeHR 2007 event at the Regensburg University Hospital on Wednesday, December 5.

This event aims at providing a comprehensive presentation of existing and emerging projects, success stories, and round table discussions in the context of collaboration between Latin America and Europe. It will feature existing organizations, associations, and networks in this domain. ELAN further aims at finding ideas and potential partners for future collaboration e.g. in the 7FP, in INCO, and in other programmes and fields. The ELAN organizers have invited several public organizations with a potential interest in featuring collaboration, like EU, DAAD, ALBAN, NCP representatives, etc.
