Since March, covid-19 restrictions have forced Healthy Boost partners to find new ways of working together online – as has been the case for rest of Europe. How have our partners managed in this? What is transnational cooperation in times of epidemic?
On the 12th-13th of November 2019, Lithuanian University of Health Sciences (LSMU) Health Research Institute researchers’ team hosted an international training for other partners of the project. Two-day training gathered 45 participants from six project countries (Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, and Finland). The training was designed to innovatively and practically test the model for cross-sectoral cooperation prepared by Latvian scientists (Riga Stradiņš University), as well as integrate it into further activities of the “Healthy Boost” project.
