Final Report - EUSANH-ISA (Improving science advice for health in Europe, EUSANH)

Project ID: 229716
Funded under: FP7-SIS


This is the publishable summary final report for the EUSAH-ISA project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Its main aim is to improve the quality, effectiveness and efficiency of science advice for health across Europe. To achieve this goal, the current performance and practices in EUSANH member countries was shown, a common 'best practice' methodology for science advice was developed, a communication and collaboration structure for the expanding and sustainable network was established and finally, the common methodology and functionality of the network was tested by developing a case study for a European science advisory report.

Survey results of the advisory processes and practices of 19 science advisory bodies for health in 12 European countries were the first step in establishing a common framework for scientific advice across Europe. As a second step, policy makers and science advisors in ten countries were interviewed on the process and the barriers and opportunities involved with science advice.
