To contribute to the development and implementation of more high-quality integrated care services in Europe, SHAPES envisages a participatory process addressing open issues that obstruct the widespread use of person-centred technology in integrated care pathways.


With our think-tank initiative, we aim for a white paper presenting the consensus view of a representative group of informed stakeholders on obstacles to the wider and successful take-up and use of technology in integrated care in Europe. This white paper will facilitate the roadmap for addressing those obstacles.


If you are a policymaker at the local, regional, national or European level, a care or housing provider, a technology developer, producer or provider, a payer, a researcher or a representative of care service users, we invite you to submit your application to join our think-tank.


The think-tank will offer a participatory and stimulating peer learning process, networking opportunities with colleagues, opportunities to present, and visibility related to publications.


We foresee four think-tank meetings between April 2022 and June 2023. The working language is English.


Think-Tank Organizers:

Philip Franke (Carus Consilium Sachsen GmbH)
Evert-Jan Hoogerwerf (WeCareMore Centre for Research and Innovation of AIAS Bologna)
