Conference on the Future of Europe – The future is in your hands!
After one year of deliberations, debates and discussions between citizens, regional, national and European politicians, EU institutions, organised civil society and social partners the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE) has come to an end, with a common trajectory for the future of the European Union, and consensus reached on its final recommendations, adopting 49 proposals, which include more than 320 measures across 9 themes. Among the topics covered by the CoFoE, the panel 3 “climate change, environment/health” has direct implications for the European research agenda and for the European healthcare systems and lifestyles.
This innovative process of the Conference gave a great opportunity to citizens to take part in the decision-making process and express their views on the European Union and how it should be improved. In this process, more than 50.000 participants, including ENRF, have contributed and shared their ideas and all their contributions have been collected and analysed.
The reports are available for consultation:
- First Interim Report Platform – August 2021
- Second Interim Report Platform – September 2021
- Report on contributions per Member State – September 2021
- Third Interim Report Platform – November 2021
- Report on contributions per Member State – November 2021
- Report Platform – February 2022
- Report on contributions per Member State – February 2022
On the Europe Day, the Co-Chairs of the Conference’s Executive Board presented the final report on the outcomes to the Presidents of the European Parliament, Council and European Commission. The three institutions reviewed the report and decided how to effectively follow-up on the recommendations.
Citizens want a clear commitment that their ambitious ideas will be turned into action and the European Commission is ready to fulfil these requests. In this context, nursing research activities and contributions play a vital role for creating resilient healthcare systems and a safe future of Europe.
Don’t miss the opportunity to leave the mark, “The future is in your hands”!
