Senior Exchange 2020 (Q1-Q4)

Dates / duration  

1st January- 1 December, 2020

Different Member States within EU/EEA

Learning objectives

The senior exchange provides the participants with the unique opportunity to familiarise themselves with working methods of other EU countries, and allows the host sites to share their experience, and build closer links to other institutions. The initiative aims at creating a network and trust among colleagues and supporting the European dimension in public health through cooperation.

Target audience  

Senior exchange is targeted to experts working with Public health institutes at the national, regional or local level.


This training format is based on exchange visits and aims to provide bilateral learning opportunities. The exchange visits are self-organised, meaning the visiting expert and the host site agree on topics, scope and objectives. We ask the visiting expert to share his acquired expertise with others in his/her home country and to report these activities to ECDC.

Note: This course is not open for public enrolment. Participation is through invitation by the focal point of the respective disease programme or function areas which is guided by the framework of collaboration between ECDC and the Coordinating Competent Bodies of Member States.
