ECprojects convergence Round Table Basel2012

In the dynamic landscape of European Commission (EC) projects, convergence is a key issue. The challenge lies in eliminating overlaps, reducing duplication and resolving conflicts between projects.

EHR4CR is emerging as an important initiative in this context, recognizing the key role of semantic interoperability in leveraging Electronic Health Record (EHR) data for research purposes. As part of a strategic move to address these challenges, the idea of convening a “Convergence Round Table” immediately following the annual EHR4CR meeting in Basel gained traction. This Round Table was intended to capitalize on the presence of experts from the EHR4CR consortium who are also involved in other relevant projects.

The primary objective of the Convergence Round Table was to lay the groundwork for a larger event planned for the first quarter of 2013. By bringing together key stakeholders, the Roundtable sought to facilitate dialogue, identify synergies, and chart a collaborative path forward.

Participants were encouraged to actively engage in shaping the agenda for the upcoming event, leveraging their collective expertise and insights. Through structured discussions and workshops, participants explored strategies to streamline collaboration, optimize resource allocation, and increase the impact of EC health informatics projects.

For those seeking further information or wishing to participate, detailed resources were made available through the EUROREC website. Interested parties were directed to access project flyers, executive summaries, work package lists and deliverables via downloadable documents.

In summary, the EC Projects Convergence Round Table in Basel 2012 served as a central platform for fostering synergy and collaboration among stakeholders. By addressing critical issues such as overlap and duplication, the Roundtable laid the groundwork for future initiatives aimed at advancing convergence and maximizing the collective impact of EC projects in driving innovation and progress in health informatics.
