All COMPAR-EU consortium partners met on 22nd and 23rd of November 2018 in Utrecht. At this year´s consortium meeting, every work package leader gave an update on the progress and discussed the work ahead. The presentations were accompanied by executive and interactive group discussions. Nice to see further progress in this interesting project on self-management!
Set up of an International Advisory Board
We are happy to pronounce that eight experts have accepted their role as an advisor for COMPAR-EU. The members of our advisory board represent different stakeholder groups, including industry, clinicians, research, HTA, patient empowerment, health system innovation, digital health investors and patients. They were selected on the basis of their ties with relevant stakeholders and their experience and expertise in EU projects and research as well as project impact development. Sanda Hoyer of Philips GmbH Market DACH will chair the board. The advisory board advises the COMPAR-EU consortium on issues related to project goals and associated legal, ethical, and social issues. The members will play a key role in supporting the dissemination and exploitation of results.
During the project timeframe of five years, the advisory board is expected to meet three times. The first meeting will take place on 8th of February 2019 in Paris.
