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

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.
