LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT YEAR 2015!

2014 has be an interesting year, full of new challenges as well as new opportunities. COCIR continued its efforts to increase its footprint and constructively contributing and sharing its members’ competencies in the sectors we are leading such as Medical Imaging and eHealth. We had a couple of rather famous publications in 2014 such as our Opens external link in new windowAge Profile with alarming results on obsolescence of equipment. In addition, our publication of Opens external link in new windowguide for beneficiaries on best use of structural funds in healthcare has been supported by the European Commission and appreciated in specific countries such as Poland and Hungary through dedicated efforts, very timely as looking into the framework 2014-2020.

Wishing all of you Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year 2015!
