We are delighted to announce the launch of the ERN Exchange Programme 2021-22, designed to spread knowledge across the network and to stimulate collaboration between healthcare professionals in European Reference Networks (ERNs). With funding from the European Commission, the programme will fund a 5-day clinical exchange visit to an ERN eUROGEN healthcare provider. Although the situation is still very uncertain due to COVID-19, we are cautiously optimistic that the first few visits might be able to take place before the end of the summer.
The deadline for the first of three rounds of calls for applicants is Monday 17 May 2021, with the visits expected to take place by the end of August, depending on the COVID-19 situation and whether our healthcare providers are accepting visitors and allowing cross border travel again.
For more information about the Exchange Programme and to register your application either to visit an ERN eUROGEN healthcare provider or to host visits in your healthcare provider, download the information leaflet and visit our online tool.
Please also feel free to contact Michelle Battye, ERN eUROGEN Centre Manager if you have questions or would like to discuss an application
