HERA 2023 Conference – Steering reflections for enhanced health preparedness

The second annual conference organised by HERA took place in Brussels on December 5, 2023. The theme of the meeting was: “Is the EU better prepared?” 

The meeting brought together 500 participants, including experts from industry, academia, civil society, national, local, and regional authorities, as well as international organisations and partner countries. Experts reflected on topics of resilient supply of medical countermeasures, research and innovation for better preparedness, global epidemic intelligence, and the correlation between climate change and infectious outbreaks. 

There were four panel sessions and Marion Koopmans represented DURABLE and was part of the panel discussion during the conference.

The conference was organised in collaboration with other services of the European Commission, and notably the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation.
