Financing and Transparency

EuroHealthNet has been part of the EU Transparency register since 2009

EuroHealthNet’s funding comes from Member and Partner fees, a core grant from the EU Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI), and co-funded project grants. It continues to try to increase the proportion of funds from direct participation to improve self-governance. We take pride in working in a transparent, ethical, and independent way. This is reflected in the integrity of our work in evidence building, advocacy, and policy development. In 2016-2017, as in previous years, no funding came from private sources. An external accountant prepares annual financial and balance reports, which are then certified by a separate advisory and accounting firm. The General Council checks and approves the financial reports at its annual meeting. The audit reports for 20162015, and 2014 are available online; for previous years, contact EuroHealthNet

EuroHealthNet started receiving a core grant from the EaSI programme in 2014, and in 2016, an external financial audit was carried out on behalf of the EC covering the first year of the funding. This audit was completed quickly and successfully, with no reconciliation required. 

Clear rules and guidelines for procurement, asset and financial management, and risk assessment are well established and set out in the ‘How We Work’ document, available on request.
