Partnerships - DG REGIO's Harnessing Talent Platform - Health Working Group





Harnessing Talent Platform

The Harnessing Talent Platform (HTP) is a newly formed knowledge-building and experience-exchange platform, which seeks to support regions in addressing the consequences of the demographic change and in mitigating the challenges associated with the decline of tertiary educated populations across the EU. It ensures that impacted regions receive the guidance, information and knowledge they need to elaborate, consolidate, develop and implement tailored and comprehensive strategies to train, attract and retain talents.

Via this platform, the European Commission shares relevant information and promotes events, best practices as well as access to technical assistance and advice to regions in need, including a dedicated helpdesk. It can therefore be considered as a catalyst for collaboration, enabling the exchange of ideas, knowledge and resources among stakeholders.


As part of Pillar 7 of the Talent Booster Mechanism, four Working Groups on the topics of: Digital, Health, Research & Innovation and Territorial development – in particular urban-rural linkages and quality of life – have been established with the purpose of helping regions address specific professional or territorial challenges which influence a region’s ability to be competitive and attractive for young and highly skilled workforce.

The four groups bring together relevant stakeholders at EU, national and regional level and enhance dialogue, exchange of experiences and knowledge building between them.

EUREGHA has been suggested and selected by the HTP secretariat and DG REGIO as co-lead of the Health Working Group. EUREGHA will work with all other members of the WG, the HTP Secretariat and DG REGIO colleagues to carry forward the different planned activities (see Concept Note), connect them with our network of members and other key projects and initiatives such as the BeWell project, where EUREGHA is coordinating the Pact for Skills Large-Scale Partnership for the Health Ecosystem.
