Role

The Advisory Committee helps to determine the theme of the conference and assesses and advises on session proposals both regarding content, format and speakers. It also supports the EHFG team with suggestions on potential sponsors and advice on the future developments and engagements of the EHFG.

The Advisory Committee is made up of individual and institutional members.

Individual members are invited on the basis of their expertise and potential contribution to the EHFG. As such, they participate in a personal capacity and are not representing any particular organisation or stakeholder group.

Institutional members use their expertise to represent their organisation. Institutional memberships are currently designated to representatives of the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe, the Young Forum Gastein and the European Health Forum Gastein Board.
