Media accreditation opens for historic year at European Health Forum Gastein

16.05.2017

The 20th European Health Forum Gastein “Health in All Politics – a better future for Europe” will take place 4-6 October 2017, in Bad Hofgastein, Austria. High-level speakers at EHFG 2017 include European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Vytenis Andriukaitis, Austrian Minister of Health and Women’s Affairs, Pamela Rendi-Wagner; Zsuzsanna Jakab, Regional Director for Europe of the World Health Organization, as well as leading officials such as Xavier Prats Monné, Director General of DG SANTE at the European Commission.

The 20th European Health Forum Gastein “Health in All Politics – a better future for Europe” will take place 4-6 October 2017, in Bad Hofgastein, Austria.

The future of Europe is facing seismic challenges on all fronts. Populism and “post-truth” politics have captured the debate, and governments grapple to meet the social and welfare expectations of their voters as Europe’s economic recovery remains slow.

Now, more than ever, is a time to build bridges between the different policy areas affecting European health, and to see how far it is possible to embrace the values of universality and access to good quality care for all. The annual European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG, http://www.ehfg.org/) is a platform to shape the future of Europe’s health policies.

Each year, the European Commission, national Ministries of Health, the World Health Organization and an array of over 500 experts from science, civil society and the private sector come together to test new ideas and identify new trends. This year, EHFG will aim higher, taking the technocratic concept of ‘health in all policies’ to the political level.

High-level speakers at EHFG 2017 include European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Vytenis Andriukaitis, Austrian Minister of Health and Women’s Affairs, Pamela Rendi-Wagner; Zsuzsanna Jakab, Regional Director for Europe of the World Health Organization, as well as leading officials such as Xavier Prats Monné, Director General of DG SANTE at the European Commission.

More information about this year’s EHFG sessions is available in the newly released programme (http://www.ehfg.org/fileadmin/downloads/03-conference/2017/ehfg2017_1pa.pdf).

The 20th anniversary edition of the EHFG conference takes place under the patronage of Alexander Van der Bellen, President of Austria.

Members of the media are invited to register for accreditation via the online form (http://www.ehfg.org/mycongress/users/login). If you are interested in finding out more or featuring the EHFG in your editorial calendar, please contact the press office at press@ehfg.org or +32 2 321 90 16.

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
