EU-funded Projects

For many years now, the EPA has been involved in different projects funded by the EU.

The current funding framework for Research and Innovation of the European Commission is called Horizon 2020 and regulates the funding since 2014 until 2020 worth around € 80 billion. You can find more information on the framework at the web page of the European Commission.

For the EPA these projects are an excellent opportunity to collaborate with key stakeholders, share our knowledge and learn from others. With our expertise in many different fields, the EPA is a valuable partner and consortium member and with growing experience the EPA established a network of partnerships in the field of research and (mental) health on EU-level. Find an overview of our partners on the dedicated Partners page.

The EPA activities

After the official start in January 2018, the EPA is a proud consortium member to support in dissemination of results and to join the Advisory Board.

The Annual meeting on 27 February 2019 in Utrecht, Netherlands, with all consortium partners was a great success! The exchanges and discussions during this meeting will make sure that the Recover-E project has enduring and sustainable impact.

As dissemination partner the EPA had the honour to organize a workshop on 6 April 2019 during the 27th European Congress of Psychiatry in Warsaw, Poland, focussing on the Recover-E project. Read more about the workshop on the project webpage.
