Electing Health - The Europe We Want!

Friday, 03.10.2014 | 13:00 - 15:00

Organised by International Forum Gastein

The Closing Plenary will round up the EHFG 2014 and highlight conclusions from the four questions posed in the Opening Plenary. In a high-level debate ideas and visions for the future Europe for health in the light of the European election outcomes will be discussed. What should be on the agenda for the European Parliament and the European Commission for the next five years? Taking into account the outcomes of the forum and workshop sessions and participants’ visions on “The Europe I want”, we will try to answer the questions on how the European social model and core European values will develop and whether the role of the EU in health will or should change in the future.
