What is the project about?

CALLIOPE stands for "CALL for InterOPErability" with the focus on eHealth. It was initiated in June 2008 as a Thematic Network. CALLIOPE created a structured and open forum to support the implementation of interoperable eHealth infrastructures and services across Europe. The project built a unique cross-stakeholder platform aspiring to governing principles and supported by a communication infrastructure and knowledge management tools.

The project saw the cooperation of  15 health authorities, 14 competence centres and 11stakeholders organisations representing networks of physicians, community pharmacists, patients, industry and health insurers. Its aim was to establish an appropriately governed, composed and structured open forum where Member States can implement interoperable eHealth solutions, in close collaboration with key stakeholders (users, industry and payers).
