Exchange Programme 2021

The European hospital and healthcare services are at the forefront of the battle against the outbreak of COVID-19. Considering that all the energies should be focused on dealing with this pandemic, in view of all the evidence and advice received, and having undertaken a risk assessment the HOPE Board of Governors has taken the most appropriate and proportionate decision by postponing to 2021 (for the first time since its creation 40 years ago) its HOPE Exchange Programme and the HOPE Agora closing it.

Warning: due to Covid-19 crisis the 2020 HOPE Exchange Programme was postponed to 2021. 2020 hosts and 2020 participants will be asked if they are willing to join in 2021. Participants accepted for the 2020 do not need to re-apply and have the priority for participating in the 2021 HOPE Exchange Programme
