The proposal will run for 24 months and has a total investment of 2 950 491,60 € (80% funded), supported by the European Union under the EU4Health programme.

The work will be carried out by a multidisciplinary consortium of 10 institutions from eight european countries:

  • 1 Public health institution - Institute for Public Health of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina - contribution to the definition of teaching needs, programme contents and implementation.
  • 3 Hospitals - Centro Hospitalar Universitário de Santo António, E.P.E. (Portugal), Paula Stradina Kliniska Universitates Slimnica (Latvia) and Viesoji Istaiga Vilniaus Universiteto Ligonine Santaros Klinikos (Lithuania) - mainly responsible for implementing the courses.

E-Hospital4Future intends to elevate the education process of health professionals, combining modules of social skills (soft skills), technical skills (hard skills) and digital skills.

The ambition of the project is to go beyond the status quo in the capabilities of health professionals, innovating the contents and methodologies of training programmes for the target audience. The final goal of e-Hospital4Future is to boost the implementation of this kind of training programmes all over Europe, including not only hospitals and other healthcare institutions, but also schools and universities. The work has already started in March and the official kick-off meeting of the project took place on March 28th at ISEP, with the participation of elements from all partners.
