The next EHPG meeting will be in Bologna hosted by Valentine Di Gregori (Gvm Care and Research) and Professor Cristina Ugolini (Advanced School for Health Policy, University of Bologna) on 11th and 12th April 2019. More information on the logistics of the meeting will be provided soon.

The theme for the meeting will be “Health and care in the age of digitalisation”. We interpret this theme broadly, covering technological change and health data, as well as any aspect of national policy and strategies concerning digital health innovations, governance of health technology, diffusion of innovations and culture change in health and social care, implications of e-health (tele consultation, monitoring, etc.) on healthcare practice, organisation and cost, and the politics of digitalisation.

As usual, there will also be space for papers on other topics, so do not hesitate to contact us if you have an idea for a paper. We encourage multidisciplinary papers and those presenting novel approaches to, or new considerations of long-lasting subjects. Papers taking a cross-country comparative angle will be especially welcome.

Please send your abstract to Zeynep Or (or@irdes.fr) by 28th December 2018. We will advise authors whether they have been successful before mid-January. Full papers need to be ready for distribution by 1st April 2019.
