ERN Exchange Programme 2021-2022

The ERN Exchange Programme 2021-2022 funded by the European Commission, aims to promote the sharing of knowledge and collaboration between healthcare professionals in the ERNs. Three editions of exchanges will take place. The first edition has started in March 2021, but due to the COVID-19 Pandemic it was almost impossible to travel and visit other ERN centers, so the programme was suspended until the 1st of April 2022. Now, the activities are resumed. In principle the project ends at 31 December 2022.

We would like to encourage all the multidisciplinary ERN-teams (including affiliated partners) to make plans. The program is open to clinicians and other healthcare professionals and invites both junior and experienced professionals. Both visitors and hosts must work in ERN GUARD Heart member centers.

For ERN GUARD Heart, the ERN Exchange Programme includes 34 so called ‘exchange-packages’. A single package provides compensation for 5 working days for 1 person, travel arrangements, and 200 Euros per working day (for the cost of accommodation, travel insurance, food and local transport). It will not include insurance for professional liability for visitors and any costs uncured by the hosting HCP. At this moment, plans for 8 of the available packages have been approved, and one visit took place.

Please, make your dreams come true and send us requests for an exchange in 2022!

All your questions and plans can be send to the project-management office of ERN GUARD-Heart: n.hofman@amsterdamumc.nl
