PRECURSOR TO COST-CARES Funded by the EU 7th framework program, WE CARE co-ordinated the development of an R&D roadmap to deliver high quality, affordable Healthcare to all EU citizens. The roadmap was published in the Lancet.

WE CARE, which ran for two years from September 2013 to 2015, was coordinated by Gothenburg University, and included several European research institutes, businesses and non-profit organisations. The project partners carried out the project work during a series of interactive workshops followed by a concluding international consensus conference. The project culminated in an R&D Roadmap.

Inger Ekman, Professor at the Department of Health and Care Sciences and Centre Director of the University of Gothenburg Centre for Person-centred Care (GPCC), co-ordinated the project.
