Events & Webinars


The European Health Forum Gastein is a unique health policy event in Europe. 

For over twenty years, the European Health Forum Gastein has worked to bring together its four pillars – public and private sectors, civil society, science & academia – to facilitate a frank but fair dialogue on health and policy by providing an impartial and inclusive platform for debate. Thus, the Gastein Forum is a meeting place for experts from different sections of the health system and beyond, and is fundamentally different from events which are specialised in highly restricted areas.
