Further information:

EU4Health is the EU’s response to COVID-19, and has a foreseen budget of €5.1 billion for 2021-2027. Legal entities established in Danish, Dutch and French OCTs will be eligible for funding like any other EU Member State (Article 14). The webinar will explain the programme objectives, however, it is still on the early phases, therefore at this stage there is no information on specific actions and priorities.

The main speaker of this event is Mr Adrian Pereş, Head of EU4Health Task Force (EU4H TF), at DG SANTE – the short name for the Directorate-General of Health and Food Safety of the European Commission.

All interested participants from the OCTs are welcomed, however the webinar will be particularly relevant for people working in the Health sector, as it will be an highly specialised programme.

This webinar is an excellent opportunity to receive a complete overview on EU4Health from the European Commission, focusing on the possibilities for the OCTs. There will also be space to discuss the possible challenges and potential solutions.
