Living and working in a Euroregion creates special opportunities. Through euregional cooperation, euPrevent uses the diversity of systems, structures and initiatives in the border region as a strength. The rich pallet of knowledge and experience that is available nearby is used on a Euroregional basis.
euPrevent considers it important to involve all stakeholders in our activities. Also the citizens. This happens in different ways:

At euPrevent, knowledge and experience cross borders. Where possible, we then try to make this knowledge and experience available to everyone. We do this by:
Besides sharing existing knowledge, euPrevent also develops new knowledge where necessary. For example, a Euroregional youth survey has been conducted since 2001, making comparable Euroregional data available. Since little comparable data is available in the border region, euPrevent, Sciensano, Kreis Düren and GGD Zuid Limburg have set up a structural partnership to collect these data and make them available. The results are shared with the public by means of the online Euregional Health Atlas.
euPrevent wants to improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of the border region. All activities are therefore aimed at a sustainable impact. Even within temporary projects, it is always ensured that there is a sustainable result, which remains available even after the project ends.
