H2020 Work-Programme 2018 - 2020 - EFN

Description:
European Federation of Nurses Associations (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
  • SC1-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

EFN as end-user partner offers a wide expertise in:

  • Identifying, assessing, and making visible good clinical practices
  • Dissemination and Exploitation of results

The EFN can 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.

In particular, EFN has the ambition engaging with the calls:

  • SC1-HCC-03-2018: Support to further development of international cooperation in digital transformation of health and care: the EFN can contribute in important measures of the call such as dissemination, awareness-raising and communication, networking, coordination and support services, policy dialogues and mutual learning exercises. The EFN has a significant experience in leading the dissemination and coordination of EU projects, by coordinating the efforts related to the development and implementation of detailed and realistic dissemination, communication and exploitation plans, in close collaboration with the contract holder and all the project partners. Moreover, through its strong network, EFN is placed in a crucial position to ensure that relevant stakeholders are engaged during the process.
  • SC1-HCC-04-2018: Digital health and care services-support for strategy and (early) adoption: the EFN can provide an important input to the task of the consortium in assisting those procurers that intend to prepare for a cross-border innovation procurement. We have confidence that representing 3 million nurses must have some value in cross-sectoral innovation procurement and in helping to improve and accelerating innovation procurement in all EU Members States. To this aim, the EFN would have the core role of addressing the well-defined unmet needs of users in health and care, using the repositories of best practises and implementation guidelines and providing opportunities for networking.
  • SC1-HCC-05-2018: Support to a Digital Health and Care Innovation initiative in the context of Digital Single Market (DSM) strategy: the EFN can greatly contribute to the main task of the action - analysing and assessing existing initiatives and projects across Europe - because, both as a coordinator and as a partner, it has already carried out similar activities of comparing and assessing existing EU initiatives. As coordinator in the EU funded project ENS4Care, the EFN led the evaluation of 175 good nursing and social work practices in eHealth services (telehealth and telecare) with the objective to develop evidence based guidelines for the implementation of eHealth services in nursing and social care, focussing on prevention & integrated care (including clinical practice, advanced roles, and nurse ePrescribing). Likewise, as partner of the PaSQ project, the EFN focussed on identifying, assessing, and making visible good clinical practices in Patient Safety, and setting up exchange mechanisms around Safe Clinical Practices.
  • SC1-BHC-10-2019: Innovation Procurement: Next generation sequencing (NGS) for routine diagnosis: in its role as end-user, the EFN would contribute to the dissemination of results, removing obstacles for introducing the solutions in the market (e.g. contribution to standardisation, regulation, certification), awareness-raising, experience sharing/training, preparing further cooperation among stakeholders and procurers in future PCPs or PPIs. In addition, nurses involved in the project would play a crucial role in enabling the NGS Platform to strengthen the implementation of personalised medicine and improved clinical decisions and health outcomes for the benefits of patients.
  • SC1-DTH-10-2019-2020: Digital health and care services: the EFN would have the core role of providing concrete input in addressing key challenges such as patient empowerment, self-management, patient safety, patient involvement, chronic disease management, diagnosing, home-care logistics, hospital logistics, skills and independent living. In parallel, the EFN input can be crucial in identifying and understanding the implications for training (including aspects of organisational, digital health literacy and new collaborative innovation principles and practises), management, and retention of healthcare staff under this topic.
