Vision, mission, goals
More healthy years along the Dutch-German border: Creating a blueprint for sustainable and resilient health systems in European border regions.
The CBI seeks to: (a) connect health researchers, healthcare providers, health policy makers, civil society (e.g. patient's associations) and health-related small and medium enterprises on both sides of the border, (b) boost the cooperation among these actors and (c) facilitate the sharing of good practices and knowledge.
Four key goals have been defined:
- Setting up the infrastructure for the creation of multidisciplinary cross-border healthcare research.
- Boosting education on healthcare systems comparison within the border region.
- Scouting and incubating cross-border healthcare initiatives in our region.
- Actively connecting and involving the diverse healthcare stakeholders in our cross-border region, and linking the CBI to European institutes and international partners focused on cross-border health.
Each goal corresponds to the next strategic areas: research, education, innovation, and society, respectively.
