European University Hospitals Alliance (EUHA)

Vall d’Hebron is promoting the European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA) in collaboration with the most important hospitals in Europe, seeking to share innovative experiences and management models.

Project description

Vall d’Hebron is hosting the European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA), made up of Europe's largest university hospitals working collaboratively to improve present and future patient outcomes.

The European University Hospital Alliance was founded in 2017, with a view to sharing experience in the areas of health, research and education. Each of the members is a leading university hospital in its country, with a capacity of more than 1,000 beds. They are national reference centres and, together, supply 100% of the existing European Reference Networks (ERNs). Moreover, all members of the Alliance have centres of excellence in research and are affiliated to a university.

The overall objective of its members is to play an active role in shaping the future of healthcare in the European Union, sharing the best practices in order to benefit patients and maximising efforts to promote high quality research.

The objectives of the European University Hospital Alliance are:

  • To improve patient outcomes.
  • To improve the opportunities and experiences of members of the Alliance in all areas.
  • To strengthen relationships with key stakeholders, such as political leaders, the European Commission, pharmaceutical and medical technology companies and funding agencies.

The new members of the European University Hospital Alliance are:

  • Allgemeines Krankenhaus der Stadt Wien - Vienna, Austria
  • Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris - Paris, France
  • Charité - Berlin, Germany
  • Erasmus Universität Medisch Centrum - Rotterdam, Netherlands
  • Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebron - Barcelona, ​​Spain
  • Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset - Stockholm, Sweden
  • King's Health Partners - London, United Kingdom
  • Ospedale San Raffaele - Milan, Italy
  • UZ Leuven - Leuven, Belgium

Among all healthcare actors, university hospitals play an important role and are one of the main drivers and catalysts of innovation.

The Alliance sets out to improve communication between university hospitals; share good practices in the areas of patient care, innovation and other fields; and discuss issues in order to strengthen European healthcare systems. The Alliance also seeks to extend opportunities so that researchers, clinical professionals and other employees have the chance to acquire experience in other European university hospitals and develop professional networks.
