Dear EAN members, colleagues, friends,

let me inform you about the next EAN General Assembly in Malta.

As previously announced, the EAN events will take place on 26-28 April 2023. We have not only the EAN General Assembly planned, but also a rich supporting programme - a joint dinner, EAN Summit or a visit of long-term care facility. Feel free to come to Malta after six months to meet EAN family members, distinguished guests and partners. This is a unique opportunity to combine work-life with a long weekend in Malta.

The provisional agenda is set as follows:

26/4      14:30 -19:30      General Assembly meeting in 

26/4      20:00 -22:00      EAN dinner for members and guest in 

27/4      9:30 - 14:30       EAN Summit on digitalisation in LTC in in

27/4      15:30 - 16:30     Executive Board meeting (only newly elected Executive Board members) - in

28/4       9:30                   Care facility tbc later


The final version of the Agenda will be emailed to you at least one month before the meeting and will be published on the EAN website.

Please REGISTER for the meeting as early as possible so that we can make good technical arrangements for all the meetings and the dinner together. The link to register is here:

Please also indicate on the registration form if someone will be accompanying you to the events. This is especially important for the joint dinner. One dinner will be covered for each EAN member or EAN partner, the accompanying person will be asked to pay 45 EUR.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can use a power of attorney. Please inform the EAN Secretariat about the use of proxy. This is very important for the preparation of the ballot papers and setting up the voting system.


We are trying to negotiate a reduced rate at a hotel in Valletta, but the negotiations are not easy and I will inform you of the outcome in a separate email in the coming days or weeks.

Of course you can arrange your own accommodation, e.g.  offers many options for good accommodation and public transport in Malta is very good and easily accessible and it will not be a problem to get to our meeting venues.

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.

Once again, I invite you most warmly to Malta. I believe that we will enjoy some beautiful sunny days together.

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

Yours sincerely,

Karel Vostry
