Are you interested in eHealth? Come join our interdisciplinary eHealth meetings and meet peers from Groningen!

eHealth research requires clinical, behavioural, organisational, technical, legal and operational knowledge. It is a very complex and multidisciplinary field. Currently most eHealth researchers are not familiar with their peers from other faculties. To profit from the knowledge and skills of all faculties, a network of eHealth experts within the University of Groningen is necessary to improve the quality of eHealth research.

We are therefore organising a serie of interdisciplinary eHealth network meetings! Meet your colleagues and form new collaborations!
