Strasbourg Meeting
7-8 April 2017

As you may have read elsewhere on this website, EuroNet members meet each other face to face three times a year to exchange experiences and ideas and to make sure the network keeps running smoothly. The 2017 Spring meeting took place in Strasbourg, France.

What made this meeting extra special was the launch of EuroNet Platform, a unique new digital platform that gives residents the opportunity to collaborate on public health research projects (see www.euronetplatform.com). This launch took place on Friday morning in an equally unique location: the European Parliament in Strasbourg. After the launch, there was a tour of the Parliament, to give those with political aspirations their very first taste of Europarliamentarianship.

Friday afternoon was filled with interesting lectures by various public health professionals from Strasbourg University. On Saturday, we had our General Assembly and we worked on the various EuroNet MRPH working groups. You can read all about these working groups elsewhere on this website.

Two very full days indeed! Luckily, fun is also an important objective of EuroNet MRPH, and so there was enough time left in the program for tarte flambée, sauerkraut, wine and French karaoke. Pictures of this part of the program will remain in an undisclosed location.
