European University Hospitals Alliance (EUHA)
Descripció del projecte
The Alliance of European university Hospitals was founded in 2017 with the commitment form nine of the best university hospitals in Europe to share their experience in healthcare, research, and education.
Each member is a leading university hospital within its country with a capacity of over 1,000 beds. They are national reference sites and together they cover 100% of the existing European Reference Networks (ERNs). In addition, all Alliance members have centers of excellence in research and are associated with a university.
The main goal of the Alliance members is to play an active role in shaping the future of healthcare in the European Union, sharing the best practices for the benefit of the patient and maximizing the efforts to drive high-quality research.
The European University Hospital Alliance aims are:
- To improve the outcomes for today and tomorrow’s patients.
- To improve the opportunities and experiences for Alliance member staff at all levels.
- To strengthen relationships with key stakeholders such as policymakers, the European Commission, pharmaceutical and medical technology companies and funding agencies.
The nine members of the Alliance of European University Hospitals are:
- Allgemeines Krankenhaus der Stadt Wien - Vienna, Austria
- Assistance Publish - Hôpitaux de Paris - Paris, France
- Charité - Berlin, Germany
- Erasmus Universität Medisch Centrum - Rotterdam, Netherlands
- Vall d'Hebron University Hospital - 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 for innovation.
The Alliance aims to strengthen communication between university hospitals, sharing best practices in the areas of patient care, innovation, and other areas, and to discuss issues to strengthen European healthcare systems. Additionally, the Alliance intends to expand the opportunities for researchers, clinical and other employees to gain experiences in other European university hospitals and to develop professional networks.

At Vall d’Hebron we are committed to humanising care, placing children and their families at the core. We offer integrated care, treating the physical aspects of the illness alongside the psychological and social repercussions. This is why our younger patients have access to toys, play areas and a host of activities that promote wellbeing.
There are more than 3,000 nurses and nursing assistants at Hospital Vall d’Hebron. The work they do in the centre is vital and they are leaders both in nursing care and research. Getting to this point was a long process, as Mariona Creus, former nursing director, and Maria Àngels Barba, the current director, recall.
The Master's Degree in Biomedical and Translational Research is an official programme created to train researchers with the requisite combination of scientific knowledge and skills to contribute to the future success of biomedical research.
The Neonatology Department’s Sibling Project is a workshop for the siblings of new-born babies admitted to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit in the Vall d’Hebron Maternity and Children's Hospital. Through simulated games and situations, the project prepares them to get used to seeing their younger siblings in a hospital medical setting.
The winning proposal for the transformation of the Vall d’Hebron Campus is the project directed by Jordi Badia, Antoni Ubach and Miquel Espinet. The project presented by the architects includes a new research building for the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, with an expandable area of 5,000 m2 and a budget of €15 million funded by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).
