Health Security: from public health to strengthening health systems, Venice, Italy, 23-29 July 2023


Health security is an increasingly important concern at European and global level. This year’s Summer School will explore what health security is and how it affects the different parts of health systems and health infrastructures.

The implications for national health systems that stem from new European and forthcoming international legislation will be explored and participants will discuss the themes of preparedness, response, and resilience to cross-border health threats in more depth. There will also be the opportunity to work on how to strengthen health systems (in their public health and health care capacities) to face threats beyond pandemics.

The Observatory Venice Summer School 2023 is a short, intensive course – a week of learning, interacting, studying and debating. It is a chance to share experiences with other policy-makers, planners, and professionals to understand and improve strategies and policies for health security.


The course is aimed at:

– European, national, regional and local policy-makers;
– those responsible for alert and preparedness systems;
– managers in primary, secondary and tertiary health care;
– civil protection officials; and
– all those with responsibilities for addressing health security in general. 

The Summer School is organised by the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, the Veneto Region of Italy, the European Commission and the World Health Organization (WHO) and applies to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. 

Application deadline: 31 May 2023
