Working Group Health and Information Technology
by Vesa Pakarinen
A new working group 'Health and Information Technology' has begun its work. During the November 1997 ERCIM meetings in Copenhagen, some of the initial Task Force members had a one day meeting. The Task force drafted a preliminary operation plan for the new Working Group including building up an ERCIM network for people and organisations working in the field.
The purpose of the working group is to build up an ERCIM network for people and organisations working in the field eg by its own web pages and workshops raise awareness of the this Working Group eg by communicating with the European Commission and national actors; and to inform and prepare common project proposals among ERCIM-institutes.
Preliminary overview of the ERCIM-activities related to WG-HIT was introduced in ERCIM News No. 29. An updated survey of member activities will be made later on. The next workshop is planned for spring 1998.
