EHFG 2015: Securing health in Europe. Balancing priorities, sharing responsibilities

12.05.2015

Under the main theme of 'Securing health in Europe. Balancing priorities, sharing responsibilities' the 18th European Health Forum Gastein will cover topics such as mHealth and eHealth, chronic disease management and countries’ preparedness to health threats. The First Programme Announcement has now been published. http://goo.gl/6mr09j

Current health systems need to safeguard past gains in health while responding to new threats and opportunities which call for a strengthened European public health response.

Though public health security remains high on the agenda, effective health systems go beyond that and are challenged also to engage with issues that lie outside the health sector. Functioning social systems and a resilient economy strongly contribute to a healthy Europe.

The focus of the European Health Forum Gastein 2015 will be on topics like health system performance, pricing of medicines and health security, including health threat responses, European development aid and health policy development.

The overarching question behind it all is how to maintain and improve the health of European citizens. As every year, we expect high-level speakers for the sessions and plenaries, ranging from European Commission officials to World Health Organization representatives and ministers of health; keynote speaker will be Richard Horton.

In keeping with our established tradition contributors and participants will come from all four EHFG pillars: Government and administration, science and academia, industry, as well as from civil society.

For the first time in EHFG history we will have a Thursday plenary in addition to our opening and closing sessions. The special focus of its panel debate is to be on the ‘Health in All Policies’ approach, which will be discussed by high-level European Commission representatives from a number of different Directorate-Generals.

Information on conference sessions will be regularly updated on our website http://www.ehfg.org.

The European Health Forum Gastein 2015 will take place from 30th September to 2nd October 2015 in Bad Hofgastein, Austria. Online registration for the conference is open. Look out for the early bird fee until 17th July.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
