It takes place, between the 19th and the 22nd of June, the 2nd Lisbon eHealth Summer week, in the headquarters of SPMS Lisbon and Oporto and Centro Cultural de Belém. This initiative is organized by SPMS, EPE and comprises several meetings of international projects in which Portugal collaborates, with the participation of 200 international experts in the field of eHealth.

“2nd Lisbon eHealth Summer Week” counts with the participation of the eHealth Network (EHN), the voluntary network connecting national Member States’ authorities responsible for eHealth, established by Article 14 of Directive 2011/24 / EU for cooperation, sharing knowledge and best practices.
