ESI Funds for Health Brussels
December 6 - December 7
European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Conference – In cooperation with the European Commission, the ESI Funds for health consortium is pleased to announce its final conference. The results of this two-year EU funded project on the use of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) to support health investments will be discussed in the light of the proposed Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027 and the legislative proposal for a new ESF+ programme.
EU Cohesion Policy aims to reduce economic and social disparities between regions in Europe with the help of European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds. Health has been recognized as an essential factor for regional development and it currently receives ESI Funds support through the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund.
The ESI Funds for health project Final Conference will discuss the use of the ESI Funds to support health investments and the implications for the proposed Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027. The findings of the project will be discussed and shed light on questions such as:
- How have the ESI Funds 2014 – 2020 contributed to EU health policy objectives across the Member States? What are the main success factors and lessons learned?
- How can the experience gained in the current period guide the EU and Member States towards better inclusion of health issues in the 2021-2027 MFF?
- How can synergies between ESF+, ERDF, and other EU financial instruments in 2021-2027 be better enabled to advance health and social inclusion?
- How can the EU Commission better support the use of ESI Funds for health-related investments within the proposed objective of “a more social Europe” for 2021-2027?
