Knowledge and Innovation Agenda Southeast Netherlands launched

Kennis- en Innovatieagenda Zuidoost-Nederland

In the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda Southeast Netherlands 2030, health organisations and partners from the regions Limburg and Southeast Brabant present their plans for better care and a healthier region in the future. The parties involved (such as local and regional authorities, hospitals and other care organisations) have entered into discussions with each other and have formulated four goals for themselves: achieving fewer socio-economic health inequalities, providing better support and care for the elderly, creating cohesion in the provision of support and care and keeping healthcare costs manageable. Three Academic Workplaces (Sustainable Care, Elderly Care and Public Health) affiliated with Care And Public Health Research Institute (CAPHRI) play a coordinating role in this by establishing connections and stimulate collaborations between the various partners.
