About the European Health Summit

The European Health Summit is a pan-European high-level platform organised back-to-back with the EPSCO Council, with the idea of strengthening collaboration not just with European institutions, but also with member states. 2024 will see its 5th edition at Egmont Palace in Brussels. With considerable in-person participation, this Summit brings together many prominent policymakers, business leaders and healthcare experts from across Europe.

Supported by Ursula von der Leyen, who opened the first annual summit in 2020, the European Health Summit (EHS) has contributed to the debate on innovation and cross-border patient access to treatments for unmet needs, pandemic preparedness, and European Health Data Space. Our ambition is to advance on topics such as prevention, mental health and cancer research to foster a resilient, equitable and competitive healthcare system across Europe.
