Underperforming Health Related Research in East EU in 7th FP

Dr. Michael Galsworthy will have a plenary lecture in the historical Aula of Pavol Jozef Safarik University in Kosice 29th October 2013 on his research findings under the title: 

The Underfunding of Health Related Research in Eastern Europe within European Union Framework Programmes - Evidence, Consequences and Proposals for Reversing the Situation in Horizon 2020.

According to the European Commission’s  Impact Assessment of Health Research Projects the original 15 member states had received 34 times more health research funding under FP7 than the 12 new members.

If we wish to reverse this situation, now is the time to act and make our  voice  heard throughout the European  Union.   Therefore as first step we invited Dr. Galsworthy to present the current state and share possible solutions that remedy this regretful situation. The solution presented can be seen also as a new  paradigm that may even out the gap between Western and  Eastern Europe within the areas of health related research.

Dr. Galsworthy is  Senior Research Associate at the Department of Applied Health Research, University College London, UK. The research that is the basis of Dr. Galsworthy’s presentation has been published under: Galsworthy M. and McKee M.  Europe’s ‘Horizon 2020′ science funding programme: Horizon 2020′ science funding programme: How is it shaping up? J Health Serv Res Policy (2 May 2013).

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under agreement n°320209
