EU politics and international guidelines have a growing impact on healthcare in Europe and in particular the field of medical imaging. The ESR closely monitors EU legislation and initiatives and has over the last years successfully built relations with relevant EU institutions, international organisations and other stakeholders. The main aim of the ESR is to be acknowledged as a major stakeholder in EU health policies and involved in consultation processes for new legislative initiatives in this field.
In order to achieve this, the ESR has adopted a proactive approach by establishing the office of an EU liaison within the ESR Board of Directors and assigning experts that are dedicated to various European political dossiers in close collaboration with the ESR Board of Directors and supported by the ESR’s EU and International Affairs Department.
