Health-2-Market services will be offered by a pool of experienced internal specialists as well as external ones coming from leading academic and industrial organisations. The provided services will be escalating to address the needs of the potential target groups: Web (e-learning) courses for broader audience, two-day seminars on specific topics, advanced training courses (intensive training academies), hands-on support and ad-hoc counselling services either through face-to-face meetings, or distance ones, etc. The project will cover all EU MS and AC through its broad partnership as well as through a network of regional experts that will be set up.
