On 24th October 2014, the coordination team and work package leaders of CHRODIS Joint Action holds a Stakeholder Forum in Madrid, Spain. The aim is to build an external cooperation network that stakeholders from relevant areas can join and participate in. The Forum will bring together collaborating partners representing related projects and initiatives as well as policymakers, managers and patients representatives among others from across Europe.
Participants will be informed about the Joint Action and its activities. They are also invited to give advice on the needs of users, investors and regulators in diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, stroke and multimorbidity to the core working groups of JA-CHRODIS. The Forum will facilitate the exchange of information and experience in these areas between the stakeholders themselves as well.
