  • Improved international interoperability of eHealth Systems in the US and in Europe.
  • Accelerated establishment of interoperability standards in eHealth and of secure, seamless communication of health related data.


The main objective remains to achieve one single international standard for the patient summary and the possibility to establish pilots that will validate the principles established within the roadmap. The proposal should focus on the need to develop an interoperability framework taking into account the EU-US collaboration underway in this area under the <a href="">EU-US MoU eHealth Roadmap</a>[[<a href=""></a>]] and other international cooperation in this area. Consortium partners should demonstrate familiarity with transatlantic cooperation, standardisation process and ability to implement the activities outlined in the EU-US roadmap.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of up to EUR 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.


In order to implement the EU-US interoperability roadmap, activities including inter-alia piloting and standardisation activities need to be put in place. Further actions would be needed to implement recommended measures, taking into account the importance to have a convergent EU-US approach.
