Despite the many challenges produced by COVID-19 last year, EHTEL used the past 12 months constructively to make many organisational and technological changes.

Looking back at 2020’s successes

Among our key achievements, we:

  • Welcomed the registration of 200 participants to our Imagining2029 webinars and 300 from nearly 40 countries to our 2020 symposium
  • Were involved in ten projects that have acted as springboards for the activities of EHTEL members
  • Ran three working groups and task forces
  • Gained nine new members, and now have 55 members in total


Now we are very involved in planning 2021

The imperatives of European directions on digital governance, and day-to-day experiences on building resilience through the COVID-19 pandemic experience will enable us to come up with new plans and activities. 

Our current work programme includes two priority topics:

  • The European Health Data Space
    Health data eco-systems and architecture and interoperability)
  • Making digital encounters part of usual care

But there is more to come!

- Throughout the year, we plan to support our EHTEL members by:

  • Operating services in your support
  • Facilitating your knowledge-sharing through our working groups and task forces
  • Contributing to and creating new knowledge through projects and initiatives
  • Networking and facilitating collaborations.

We can offer you plenty of webinars, factsheets, newsletters, opportunities to join in both EHTEL-organised activities and other external events and, of course, opportunities to network with our community of 4,000 including members.


- Innovation remains crucial to the way we operate

We plan to align our activities along these three key lines:

  • ICT innovation
  • Process innovation
  • Policy support

This commitment encompasses a number of important projects – and more – in which we’re involved:
