Join the European Health Parliament movement

Healthcare is everyone’s business. Our health and wellbeing are inextricably linked – which is precisely why modern, high-quality care is of essence.

European healthcare today is faced with both numerous challenges and opportunities, such as an ageing population and cross-border threats on the one hand, and concepts such as Big Data, Internet of Things and Personalised Medicine on the other.

In order to re-imagine European healthcare, we need to roll up our sleeves and go beyond the standard approach. What’s needed today, is out-of-the-box thinking, relentless creativity, thirst for innovation and the courage to step off the beaten path.

Sounds like you? Are you under 35? Then this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to use your exceptional talents and expertise in service of an exceptional cause.
