New Horizon 2020 EURO-CAS project launched

The new Horizon 2020 EURO-CAS project has been launched on 25 January 2017. The aim of the project is to deliver an eHealth Conformity Assessment Scheme for Europe in 2018.

This new project will pave the way for more eHealth interoperability in Europe and it is meant to promote the adoption and take-up of interoperability testing of eHealth solutions against identified eHealth standards and profiles defined in eHealth European Interoperability Framework (eEIF).

  • With a budget of ā‚¬1 Million the scheme will help European health systems assess the conformity of eHealth products and solutions with international standards, and will enhance vendors' visibility by offering public recognition of conformity of their products.
  • According to experts, this will advance eHealth interoperability, help advance the European Digital Single Market in the health and care domain, and facilitate the sharing of information for better and more person-centred healthcare.
  • The EURO-CAS consortium consists of representatives and competence centres of key European regions and Member States, as well as experts and international associations.
  • The consortium is meant to assess the interoperability requirements of European health systems and analyse the existing testing and certification schemes, before developing and testing a European conformity scheme in several regions, guided by an advisory board of additional experts and policymakers.


  • The project is led by IHE Europe (BE) and coordinated by EIBIR (AT), and joined by 14 national and regional government bodies, competence centres, and associations.
  • The EURO-CAS project has received funding from the European Unionā€™s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 727028.

Next steps:

  • The finalised EURO-CAS model will be presented in November 2018 to the public.
