EuroNeoNet (ENN) is a specialized neonatal network to provide networking to European neonatologists and other stakeholders a tool to perform quality assurance and benchmarking, and a framework to facilitate the development of high-quality outcome epidemiological research, implement quality improvement initiatives and randomized clinical trials. ENN is affiliated to the European Society for Paediatric Research and the European Society for Neonatology (ESPR/ESN).

The ENN Mission is to enhance neonatal networking to help neonatologist to promote a culture for quality of care improvements and patient safety, family-centered and developmental care and dissemination of evidence-based interventions, e-learning, and to effectively conduct academically-driven clinical trials, case-control, cohort, cluster and nested studies.

Our Vision statement is that all Very Low-Gestational Age (VLGA, <32 weeks) and Very-Low-Birth-Weight (VLBW, <1500 g) newborn infants born in Europe, receive the best possible health care no matter where born, by preventing any existing inequalities and that all Neonatal Units shear a standardized perinatal risk and protective factors, neonatal interventions and short- and long-term outcomes for those tinny and vulnerable infants.

Our organization values are guided by the democratic, transparency, equal opportunity, values common to the European culture, and to shear all information gathered to help any interested stakeholders.

Our strategic aim is to consolidate a standardized set of health indicators to assess the quality of health care delivered to very premature infants by European institutions, regions and countries. We aim to reduce neonatal morbidity and mortality and improve their health status at 2 years, detect any inequalities that might exist.

Communication to the key interested stakeholders is mainly performed via our interactive website (www.euroneonet.org), but periodic reports, newsletters, leaflets, publications, abstracts and presentations are also periodically and widely disseminated.

The overarching aim of the CIE Toolkit project is to facilitate the rapid and effective response to acute chemical incidents by providing a source of relevant material, in the form of a toolkit, along with a training manual enabling participating Member States to address specific training needs. The objective of the project is to reduce the burden of disease related to chemical emergencies through improved public health response.

The objective of this proposal is to consolidate, strengthen and test the outputs from previous European Commission (EC) Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC) funded projects;- Alerting System for Chemical Health Threats (ASHT), Chemical and Radiological Inventory of Medical Countermeasures(CARIMEC), Chemical and Radiation Risk Assessment Network(CARRA-Net), through consultation and exercises with end-users (i.e. Health Security Committee (HSC) Chemical, Biological, Radio-Nuclear (CBRN) working group) and multi-sectoral stakeholders at the European Union (EU) and Member State (MS) level. The network of risk-assessors/managers (initiated in CARRA-Net) will be further developed to operate in pilot mode during the project for activation during a transboundary chemical incident with potential public health implications.

The project aims at setting up a surveillance system to monitor the occurrence of urinary incontinence (UI) in women in the EU. The project will focus on incontinence as a consequence of inefficient or inappropriate obstetric care, with the ultimate view to formulate appropriate strategies, policies and actions to avoid these conditions, and thus improve the quality of life of particular sections of the female population.
