The eventual research strategy that the project is to deliver will support health services and systems so that they become more resilient, effective, equitable, accessible, sustainable and comprehensive in Europe and elsewhere.

According to Dr Aoife Cahill, HRB,

'If you are thinking of contributing, then you may be interested in a 20-page report that the HRB produced following a 2018 survey that it conducted. The survey sought opinions about current and upcoming health services and systems research priorities within Ireland and the EU. The data collected through the survey was then mapped to relevant national documentation'.

The HRB document Mapping and analysing priorities, common themes and gaps in research on good models of care provision in Europe (PDF) is available to download.

See the To-Reach website for more information about the consultation process. The consultation remains open until 28 June 2019.
