We are working on several research projects and studies which related to the development of palliative care in Europe.

This includes involvement in the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) Task Force on the Development of Palliative Care in Europe.

We are active in the work of the European Association for Palliative Care (EAPC) Task Force on the Development of Palliative Care in Europe.

We work on this in partnership with the ATLANTES project which is led by Professor Carlos Centeno at the Institute for Culture and Society of the University of Navarra, Spain.
