Pharaon engages in discussions on the future of the health and care cluster

Pharaon Coordinator Filippo Cavallo, UNIFI, participated in the health & care cluster meeting on 9 and 10 March in Lisbon, Portugal, together with other large-scale pilot representatives, EHTEL as the Coordinator of the Cluster and Christopher Klein from the EU Commission.

At the meeting, participants discussed the future of the cluster and how to continue offering a synergetic platform to future Large Scale Pilot projects, hence responding to the Horizon Europe wish to have projects identifying/exchanging critical resources and developing “synergies with other relevant initiatives”. The cluster also agreed on the basic functioning mechanisms and inclusion criteria to guarantee that the initiative keeps on bringing value. It will also seek new opportunities to connect the cluster with a number of other networks such as the Active and Healthy Ageing Community or the Digital Innovation Hub. Lastly, the meeting allowed for reflections on how future projects can join forces to guarantee an optimal dissemination and exploitation of their results at an early stage.
