The Future for Patients in Europe, A European Research Project, February 2004/ January 2007

Funded under: FP6

Abstract

The Europe for Patients (e4p) project, part of the component on Scientific Support to Policies (SSP) of the European Union's 6th Framework Research Programme, was launched in February 2004. It will provide the evidence needed to maximise the benefits that can be achieved with enhanced patient mobility in Europe.
The project has high policy relevance, addressing an important European issue. It builds on earlier work by the High Level Reflection Process on Patient Mobility and its follow-up by the European Comission. The project gathers a multidisciplinary team of Europe's leading experts on this issue. Coordinated by IESE Business School in Barcelona, e4p brings together the organisations that contributed to the December 2001 Ghent Conference under the Belgian presidency (LSHTM, LSE, OSE, AIM and Ghent University), and the influential reports that arose from it, complemented by the European Observatory on Health Care Systems and research institutions from Northern Ireland (CCBS), Slovenia (IVZ) and Estonia (Praxis). Building on these achievements, this project will contribute considerably to European policies in the area of public health, health systems and social protection.
