José Ferro chosen for European Commission expert group

Neurologist and professor José Ferro, coordinator of the Neurology Service at the Hospital da Luz, joined the EU Scientific Panel for Health in January 2015, together with another 26 European experts. José Ferro is the only specialist Portuguese scientist to be part of this important European working group, which works directly with the European Commission.

The Scientific Panel for Health's mission is, among other things, to provide opinions and make recommendations on the support strategy for health research and innovation in Europe in the context of the Horizon 2020 Programme - which aims not only to invest in health-related research, but above all to promote knowledge sharing and collaboration between leading European research centres.
