    The European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN) is looking to join consortia.

    EFN is looking to be a partner (end-user) within a consortium's proposal for the following H2020 calls (deadline April 2018):

    • SC1-HCC-03-2018: Support to further development of international cooperation in digital transformation of health and care
    • SC1-HCC-04-2018: Digital health and care services–support for strategy and (early) adoption 
    • C1-HCC-05-2018: Support to a Digital Health and Care Innovation initiative in the context of Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy
    • SC1-BHC-10-2019: Innovation Procurement: Next generation sequencing (NGS) for routine diagnosis
    • SC1-DTH-10-2019-2020: Digital health and care services

    The European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN) can, representing the end-user, provide an important input to the consortium bringing the concrete end-users needs - the nurses’ needs - regarding solutions, digital services and communication concepts that can facilitate the transition to integrated care models.

    As EU umbrella organisation, the EFN has in membership 36 National Nursing Associations, representing 3 million nurses. In this sense, the role of EFN can be determinant in collecting data related to the current challenges faced by the nursing workforce in the transition to integrated care models across health and social services in the EU and Europe.

    In relation to the call’s tasks, EFN can recruit Country Experts coordinating specific actions, and is in a position to gather key EU stakeholders.

    In parallel, as the founder of the European Nursing Research Federation (ENRF), the EFN has connections to the nursing research and academia environment. The ENRF objective is to analyse and compile what already exists in terms of nursing research in the EU Member States, in order to convert existing data into evidence-based advocacy for the EU policy-making process.
