Advocacy event in Brussels

Join the COMPAR-EU Advocacy Event in Brussels, Belgium!

The COMPAR-EU consortium invites you to the final project conference part II, taking place in November 2022.

When and where?

15/11/22 & 16/11/22
Onsite and Online

Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton Brussels

During the last 5 years, COMPAR-EU has identified, compared, and ranked the most effective and cost-effective self-management interventions (SMIs) for adults in Europe living with one of the four high-priority chronic conditions: type 2 diabetes, obesity, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and heart failure.

It is a multi-method, multi-component, interdisciplinary project that will contribute to bridging the gap between current knowledge and practice on self-management interventions for the period of 2018 to 2022. More information on the project, including all the Consortium partners, is available here.
