The main purpose of the meeting was to discuss issues relevant to e-medicine and GÉANT, as well as to identify issues that require comprehensive research in this area in the future.
Employees from various research and education networks then made presentations on how their networks support international e-medicine projects in their countries, what services will be used in the future and what services hospitals will use during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was noted at the event that a number of GÉANT national research and education networks support e-medicine projects or offer eHealth-related services to their clients. The EOSC-Life project, funded by the European Commission, addresses a number of common issues related to e-medicine and e-infrastructure.
