Foundations

European border regions are affected by higher levels of unemployment, poorer health, double the level of ageing and more poverty. Living near to a border region means fewer opportunities in the field of employment, education, mobility, health care and welfare. This is because the orientation of policy is predominantly national. As a result, crossing a country’s borders can be a daunting task.

  • euPrevent wants cross-border collaboration in promoting health to become a matter of course.
  • euPrevent is a euregional network for sustainable collaboration, that increases the quality of life of Meuse-Rhine Euregion (EMR) residents.

euPrevent wants EMR residents to have the highest possible quality of life.

Citizens regularly cross borders. Within euPrevent, knowledge and experience are also crossing borders.

  • euPrevent uses the diversity of systems, structures and initiatives in the euregion as a force: a rich pallet of knowledge and experience is available and close at hand.
  • euPrevent translates international frameworks and research into local communities (e.g. Health in all Policies, positive health, Sustainable Development Goals).

euPrevent is a laboratory for health innovation.

The 35 structural partners form the beating heart of euPrevent. They work together in sub-groups on various health topics.

  • euPrevent initiates concrete euregional collaborations and projects that focus on what we are currently able to influence.
  • euPrevent always works on realising concrete, sustainable results and products.

euPrevent supports a thematic focus and concrete results.

Organisations often have a national orientation and are invited to national networks and exchanges. In border regions it is also important to get to know your immediate neighbours better and work together on a healthy Euregion.

  • euPrevent invests in constructing long-term, euregional relationships. Professionals get to know and trust one another learn: the basic conditions for sustainable collaboration.
  • euPrevent always involves citizens.

euPrevent knows we can achieve more together.
