Upcoming events

Conference on Improving Cancer Screening in the European Union

Ciência 2022 (Science 2022)

The annual meeting of science, technology and innovation in Portugal, takes place this year on the 16th, 17th and 18th of May, at the Lisbon Congress Centre. On day 3, Rebecca Fitzgerald, University of Cambridge is invited to speak during the session Plenária 6: “Cancro: avanços e desafios”

7th Congress of Preventive Medicine

The 7th Congress of the Section for Preventive Medicine of the Slovenian Medical Association is set in an unprecedented time when public health is at the center of attention of the entire society around the world. In the past, public health professionals have repeatedly wished to receive more attention from other scientific disciplines, societies, policies, and global development efforts. At the last congress five years ago, we almost prophetically ascertained the importance of integration for health and discussed the relationship between the public health profession and society.

Past events

Transforming the Future of Ageing – SAPEA event in France

What policies at the EU level could support the Member States in achieving inclusive, fair and sustainable systems of health and social care and promote the taking-up of innovation for ageing societies? This question is tackled by the upcoming SAPEA Evidence Review Report.

Transforming the Future of Ageing – SAPEA event in Romania
