Improving health and care systems

The rapid development and aging of society, coupled with the arrival of new health emergencies, are placing increasing pressure on health and care systems. Countries need to respond to this growing burden and live up to their shared commitment to high-quality healthcare. Is your organisation concerned by these challenges and willing to address them in collaboration with European partners?

Harmonised and coordinated solutions are the way forward. The Partnership on Transforming Health and Care Systems (THCS) aims to encourage the transformation and improvement of healthcare systems in Europe and participating countries to make them equitably accessible, sustainable, efficient, resilient and inclusive.

This partnership aims to bring about comprehensive and long-term changes in the complex research and innovation ecosystems in the field of health and care. Stakeholders work together to stimulate these activities. Particular emphasis is placed on the need to encourage implementation, increase information on policy and practice, and provide the necessary inputs to improve the capacity of health and care systems.

This programme is aimed at:

  • All kinds of organisations and entities that can contribute to the vision of THCS: Universities, higher education institutions, research organisations, hospitals, foundations or any healthcare providers, user organisations, SMEs, Start-ups and large companies.
