EAN Summit on Digitalisation in Long Term Care - call for speakers

EAN invites its members to actively participate in this summit and present the national situation on Digitalization in long term care. The summit will be designed in the same way as the EAN Workforce summit in Malmö. The working group will prepare a sample presentation with questions and topics to be presented (15 minutes) by the end of March 2023. Please let us know if you would like to present the situation in your country – per email to Karel Vostrý / and Cc to Marcel Smeets / .

Of course, admission to the summit is free for EAN members and partners.

Current state of play – Speakers of The Netherlands, France, Sweden, Czech Republic, Norway and Estonia are confirmed – we still have 2 free slots – would any of the delegates please be interested in presenting the situation in your country?

I hope to see as many of you as possible in Malta.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,
